Pope Francis visited Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos after meeting Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Saturday morning. The people held placards, asking him to save them as the Pope went among the crowd. The pontiff rescued 12 refugees, who had been in the camps before the deal was struck between the EU and Turkey, and took them back to Rome.
