After Pope Francis' visit to Greece on Saturday, the pontiff took three Syrian refugee families back to Rome where the Vatican will take care of them.
The Pope said, "We must never forget, however, that migrants, rather than simply being a statistic, are first of all persons who have faces, names and individual stories."
The Vatican said the 12 refugees are Muslim and that the move was carried out through talks with officials from Italy, Greece and the Vatican.
