Pope Francis says he doesn't like to refer to violence carried out by Muslims as "Islamic violence" because there's violence carried out by people from all religions.
The pope told reporters: "If I talk about Islamic violence, then I also have to talk of Catholic violence. Not all Muslims are violent, just like not all Catholics are violent."
He explained that he reads stories in newspapers all the time about Catholics committing violence against a girlfriend or mother-in-law.
