Pope Francis urged an end to "horror and death" in Syria on Sunday as he presided over the traditional Easter mass in Rome.

The Argentine pontiff expressed the hope that Christ's own sacrifice might help bring "comfort and relief to the civil population in Syria, prey to a war that continues to sow horror and death".

A suicide car bomb attack on buses carrying Syrians evacuated from two besieged government-held towns has left  at least 112 killed, a monitoring group said Sunday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 98 evacuees from the northern towns of Fuaa and Kafraya were killed when an explosives-laden vehicle hit their buses at a transit point west of Aleppo on Saturday.
