STORYLINE:Pope Francis is heading back to the Greek island of Lesbos to meet migrants and asylum-seekers for the second time in five years. It comes as European governments are hardening borders and policies to keep migrants out, but as religious faiths seek broader collaboration to address major global problems. When Pope Francis visited the Greek island of Lesbos in 2016, he was so moved by the stories he heard from families fleeing war in Iraq and Syria that he wept and brought a dozen refugees home with him.Francis is returning to Lesbos this week for the first time since that defining day of his papacy, making a repeat visit to the island where hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants have passed through on their journey to Europe.The 84-year-old pontiff will stop on the island for several hours during an upcoming visit to Orthodox-majority Cyprus and Greece. Francis begins that five-day trip on Thursday.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
