Pope Francis: US Action against ISIS a 'Just War'

Ad Feedback

Pope Francis is giving his blessing on efforts to stop ISIS terrorists from attacking religious minorities in Iraq.

Journalists asked the pope if he approves of U.S. air strikes against the jihadist army.

He replied that it's acceptable to "stop an unjust aggressor" and that Church teaching allows for just wars.

The pontiff also said he's considering visiting northern Iraq to show solidarity with persecuted Christians, but has not yet made a decision.
