Pope Francis Faces Diplomatic Challenges with Visit to Myanmar and Bangladesh

Pope Francis visits Myanmar and neighboring Bangladesh next week amid international outrage over what the U.S. describes as the ethnic cleansing, of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim minority. During the Nov. 26 through Dec. 2 trip, the pope will meet with Myanmar’s civilian and military leaders as well as Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. As Jesusemen Oni reports, all eyes are on the pontiff to see how he handles the diplomatic minefield in Myanmar, also known as Burma.
