Damascus, 5 Nov. (AKI) – The papal envoy to Syria Mario Zenari on Tuesday swore he would remain in the war-wracked country despite a missile strike on the Vatican embassy in central Damascus.
“We represent the Pope in Syria and we won’t leave the country,” Archbishop Zenari told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone interview. “If there are further attacks like today’s we will move to another area,” Zenari said, adding that the embassy was located in a “sensitive area” of the capital.
Editor’s note: Was this just a coincidence, or was the Vatican Embassy deliberately targeted?
