Myanmar mass: Pope urges minorities to resist ‘revenge’

For the second day in a row, Pope Francis has avoided using the name of Myanmar's persecuted Rohingya minority and failed to condemn the country's military for what the United Nations has called a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

But the Roman Catholic leader preached a message of forgiveness in his first public Mass in Myanmar's largest city, Yangon. He also called on people to resist the temptation for revenge.

Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler reports from Yangon.
