Pope urges freedom for Pakistani Christian

Pope Benedict XVI has urged the release of a Christian woman in Pakistan facing the death sentence on a charge of blasphemy.


Benedict told his weekly public audience Wednesday that Christians in Pakistan "are often victims of violence and discrimination." He called for the release of Asia Bibi, who was recently sentenced to death accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammad. (AP)
