Vatican City, Aug 15 (Prensa Latina) Pope Francis on Sunday expressed his sympathy for the Haitian people, who was hardly hit by an earthquake on Saturday, with a high death toll, injured and extensive material damage.

‘As I raise my prayers for the victims, I direct my word of encouragement to the survivors, hoping that the interest of the international community will be directed towards them,’ the Pope noted after the Angelus prayer.

‘May the solidarity of all mitigate the consequences of the tragedy! Let us pray together to Our Lady for Haiti,’ Francis underscored.
