Pope Francis said Saturday the world was beset by an "atmosphere of war" and attacked those who are guilty of inciting and fomenting it.

Many conflicts across the planet amount to "a kind of third world war being fought piecemeal and, in the context of global communications, we sense an atmosphere of war," the pontiff said in a mass at Sarajevo's Olympic Stadium during a one-day visit to the Bosnian capital.
