Pope Visits Greek Migrants With The Orthodox Patriarch

People sit under newly erected tents inside Moria camp on Lesbos island, Greece, where 2,300 migrants and refugees are being detained for deportation back to Turkey on Friday, April 15, 2016. Pope Francis will visit Moria camp Saturday, a mission human rights groups hope will highlight the plight of refugees who fled their war-ravaged homes only to be denied entry to Europe. Pope Francis will be joined by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the head of the Orthodox Church of Greece, Athens Archbishop Ieronymos II. (Petros Giannakouris/AP)
