Pope Francis used his Sunday address in St Peter’s square to urge believers to pray for the victims of the deadly attack in London.

“May the holy Spirit bring peace to the whole world, cure it of the plagues of war and terrorism, which even last night in London has struck innocent civilians,” the Argentine pontiff said.

“Let us pray for the victims and those close to them.”
