JERUSALEM - Pope Francis on Monday prayed at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the holiest site for Jewish prayers, after visiting the nearby Al-Aqsa mosque.

Placing his right hand on the ancient stones, he bowed his head for a few minutes before placing a note in the wall, then sharing an emotional embrace with two close Jewish and Muslim friends travelling with him.
