Pope prays for success of Syria peace talks

VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis prayed Wednesday for a Switzerland peace conference on the Syrian crisis to end in reconciliation, calling on the warring sides to resolve a conflict estimated to have killed more than 130,000 people.

The pontiff called on all parties "to spare no effort in urgently ending violence and a conflict which has already caused too much suffering," and prayed for "a decisive path to reconciliation, understanding and reconstruction".
