VATICAN CITY: Pope Francis has called for a day of fasting and prayer around the world next Saturday for peace in Syria, which will include a vigil on St Peter's Square.

"May the cry for peace enter the hearts of everyone so that they may all lay down their weapons," the pope told tens of thousands of pilgrims at the Vatican on Sunday.
