Pope hopes Muslims, Christians can promote mutual respect
VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Francis has expressed hope that Muslims can work together with Christians to promote mutual respect.
The Pope spoke from his studio window overlooking St Peter's Square during his traditional Sunday appearance.
He said that "our brothers" the Muslims had just concluded their holy month of Ramadan, dedicated to fasting, prayer and alms-giving.
Tens of thousands of Romans and tourists turned out in the square in the blistering heat for the papal appearance and blessing.
