Pope honours priest's 'sacrifice'

Pope Benedict XVI has paid tribute to an Italian priest shot dead in Turkey.
The Pope said he hoped the "sacrifice" of Andrea Santoro would contribute towards dialogue between religions.

There has been speculation that the shooting may have been linked to the controversy over cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.

A 16-year-old boy is under arrest in connection with the killing, which took place at the priest's church in the Black Sea port of Trabzon.
