Pope Francis has condemned ‘profound and unacceptable’ crimes against humanity during his trip to the Philippines, after one of his former colleagues, former Italian Prime Minister Corrado Gelli, claimed to have witnessed torture in a detention center where the late Pope Benedict XVI was held as a missionary and in solitary confinement for nearly 25 years.
