While speaking in front of a group of children at the Vatican on Saturday, Pope Francis said refugees "are not dangerous, but in danger."
The pope's comments come shortly after a disastrous week for migrants crossing into Europe by water. Over 700 migrants drowned last week crossing the Mediterranean Sea en route from Africa to Italy. Some 13,000 migrants were rescued.
The pope also mourned the loss of one girl that couldn't be saved. He showed the children a life jacket he said was given to him by a Spanish rescue worker.
