Pope Prays for Hurricane Victims in Haiti

CAGLIARI, Sardinia: Pope Benedict XVI says he is praying for the hurricane victims in Haiti.

Benedict has told a crowd of faithful at the end of an open-air Mass in Sardinia that he wants to remember Haiti's people, who are suffering from the effects of three hurricanes.

He said at the end of the service in Cagliari on Sunday that he is praying for the "unfortunately numerous" victims and for the homeless. He said he was close to the entire Caribbean nation and expressed hope that all necessary aid reach the country as soon as possible.

Dozens have been killed by flooding this week in Haiti and officials there fear the approaching Hurricane Ike could do further damage.
