Pope Francis denounces ‘oppressive regimes’ in Easter message Sunday April 16,2017

Pope Francis denounced “oppressive regimes” in his Easter message on Sunday April 16,2017 but in an apparent call for restraint urged world leaders to prevent the spread of conflicts, as tensions rose in North Korea and Syria.

Pope Francis  marking the fifth Easter season of his pontificate, said Mass before tens of thousands of people under exceptional security measures in  St Peter's Square following recent vehicle attacks against pedestrians in London and Stockholm.

More police vans and army vehicles than usual were positioned at the entrances to the Vatican area and the faithful were stopped at several check points leading into the square, which was decorated with 35,000 flowers and trees
