Pope says many powerful people don't want peace

Francis says arms production is 'industry of death'

(ANSA) - Vatican City, May 11 - Pope Francis said Monday that "many powerful people don't want peace because they live off war". The Argentine pontiff made the hard-hitting comment in response to a question from one of the 7,000 children taking part in an audience held with the Peace Factory organisation. "This is serious," Francis told the children.
    "Some powerful people make their living with the production of arms.
    "It's the industry of death".
