Rohingya crisis top of pope's agenda during upcoming visit

Pope Francis is to visit Myanmar and Bangladesh Nov. 27-Dec. 2 and already Myanmar bishops have issued warnings that he should not use the term Rohingya as it is sensitive in their country. Bishop Gervas Rozario of Rajshahi, chairman of the Bangladeshi Catholic bishops' Justice and Peace Commission, told that the Rohingya crisis would surely be discussed with government leaders in private, more than it being made a public issue.
