Vatican set to scrap pope Holy Land trip says Israel (see previous).

(ANSA) - Tel Aviv, March 7 - The Vatican is set to scrap Pope Francis' May 24-26 visit to the Holy Land because of an Israeli diplomats' strike, an Israeli foreign ministry source told ANSA Friday. The Vatican has already scrubbed a mission by a preparatory delegation, the source said.

The source said the pope's historic trip was hanging by a thread with pessimism prevailing. http://popefrancisnewsapp.com/
