Colombian leaders and rebels seeking a historic peace accord sought Pope Francis and UN chief Ban Ki-moon's help Friday in setting up a court to prosecute atrocities committed during the conflict.The court will be a delicate part of a peace agreement that the government and the FARC leftist rebel group are hoping to sign soon to end Latin America's last armed civil conflict.They said they had agreed to ask Pope Francis and Ban along with three Colombian judicial authorities to contribute to naming judges to sit on the planned new court, which will be called the Special Peace Jurisdiction.
