Rai finds no escape from controversy on pilgrimage

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY RITA DAOU Lebanon's Maronite Patriarch, Beshara Rai speaks to an AFP journalist on May 13, 2014 at the See of the Maronite Catholic Patriarchate in Bkerke, that overlooks the bay of Jounieh in central Lebanon. Rai's planned visit to the Holy Land is highly sensitive in a country where power is shared between Christians and Muslims, and where political divisions carved out during the 1975-1990 civil war have never quite healed.
