Pope Brings 12 Syrian Refugees to Rome

After a visit to the Greek island of Lesbos, where Pope Francis met with refugees at the Moria detention facility, the Pope brought twelve refugees back to Rome. The three families, who were selected through a lottery, will be relocated in the Vatican city. The Pope has said that European countries must implement policies to assist migrants, stating that they have a "responsibility of welcome."
