Pope: End 'Senseless' Mideast Conflict

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope John Paul II opened the new year Wednesday by
pleading for an end to the ``fratricidal and senseless'' conflict in the
Middle East as the church celebrated its World Day of Peace.

``Despite the serious and repeated attacks to the serene and joint
cohabitation of peoples, peace is possible and right,'' the pope said, to
rare applause interrupting his homily during a New Year's Day Mass in St.
Peter's Basilica.

``Indeed, peace is the most precious good to invoke from God and to build
with every effort.''
