The Vatican newspaper l’Osservatore Romano described Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi as “merciless” as Pope Benedict called for an end to the unrest sweeping Arab nations. “The situation is ever more critical in Libya where dire news reports pour in which, if confirmed, paint a frightening picture of massacres of the civilian population” by the Libyan armed forces, including the air force,” the Vatican paper said according to a Zawya report. Bombings of Libyan civilians have been widely reported in the north African country with over 600 dead according to some sources. Meanwhile, Pope Benedict and Lebanese President Michel Sleiman yesterday expressed the need for an end to the unrest in the Arab world, Monsters and Critics says. The pope received Sleiman, a Maronite Christian, for “cordial discussions,” the Vatican said in a statement. The pontiff and the Lebanese president expressed “their shared conviction that it is vital to resolve the ongoing conflicts in the region,” the statement said.
