VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis provided prayers Sunday for the victims of an earthquake that shook huge swaths of territory in Ecuador and components of Peru.

Throughout his weekly Sunday midday blessing, Francis recalled that the 6.8-magnitude temblor induced “dying, accidents and heavy injury.”

“I’m near the Ecuadorean individuals and guarantee them of my prayers for the useless and struggling,” Francis stated.

Saturday’s quake killed not less than 15 individuals, injured a whole bunch and introduced down properties and buildings in vastly completely different communities, from coastal areas to the highlands. A minimum of one of many deaths was in Peru.
