Pope Francis called this Sunday for calm to all parties in the face of the bloody indigenous protests registered in Ecuador.

"I follow with concern what is happening in Ecuador"said the Argentine pope after the weekly Angelus prayer at the Vatican.

"I encourage all parties to abandon violence and extreme positions. Only with dialogue will it be possible to find, I hope soon, social peace"he added.
