Pope hails nun slain in Haiti as martyr

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 27 - Pope Francis on Sunday hailed an Italian nun slain in an attempted robbery in Haiti as a martyr.
    Sister Lucia Dell'Orto, 64, from Lombardy, was killed on Saturday in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince where she had been working for decades helping the poor.
    "Sister Lucia had been living there for twenty years, devoted above all to the service of street children," Francis said during his Angelus blessing.
    "Sister Lucia made of her life a gift for others, up to her martyrdom". (ANSA).
