The British public and the world community must stop ignoring the suffering and murder of people in faraway places, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, said in his Easter Sermon at Canterbury Cathedral yesterday. "Some lives, it seems, are still forgettable; some deaths still obliterate memory for those of us at a distance," he said.

The British public and the world community must stop ignoring the suffering and murder of people in faraway places, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, said in his Easter Sermon at Canterbury Cathedral yesterday. "Some lives, it seems, are still forgettable; some deaths still obliterate memory for those of us at a distance," he said.

Meanwhile, in his speech at St Peter's Square, the Pope spoke of the "inhuman, and unfortunately growing, phenomenon of terrorism". Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor, the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, backed the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey's condemnation of Muslim leaders for not saying more to combat terrorism, in a television interview.
