Pope says some refugee centres 'concentration camps'

Pope says some refugee centres 'concentration camps'Pope Francis on Saturday described some of Europe’s refugee centres as “concentration camps”, as he paid tribute to an unknown Christian woman slain for her faith in front of her Muslim husband. “These refugee camps — so many are concentration camps, crowded with people… because international accords seem more important than human rights,” Francis said in impromptu remarks at a ceremony in memory of modern-day Christian martyrs. Departing from his prepared script and appearing unusually emotional as he spoke, the 80-year-old pontiff said he wanted the woman to be remembered along with all the other martyrs commemorated in Rome’s Basilica of St Bartholomew.
