Pope Francis in Turkey urges faiths to combat fanaticism

Pope Francis has called for an interfaith dialogue to counter fanaticism and fundamentalism, at the start of a key visit to Turkey.

"Religious freedom... will stimulate the flourishing of friendship and will become a significant sign of peace," he said at the presidential palace in Ankara.

Turkey is hosting 1.6 million refugees and the Pope urged more help for them: "The international community has a moral obligation to help".
