Pope Francis said Monday the international community would be justified in stopping Islamist militants in Iraq but that it should not be up to a single nation to decide how to act.Proclaiming a caliphate straddling parts of Iraq and Syria, the militants have swept across northern Iraq and driven tens of thousands of Christians and members of the Yazidi religious minority from their homes.The pope suggested he was not giving a automatic green light for bombings or war but that the situation was grave and the international community had to respond together.
