Pope says Iraq archbishop death "inhuman violence"

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict on Thursday condemned the death of the kidnapped Chaldean Catholic archbishop in Iraq as “an act of inhuman violence that offends the dignity of the human being”.

The Pope made his comments in a telegram sent to Iraqi Catholic Church leaders after the discovery of the body of Paulos Faraj Rahho, who was abducted last month.
