Prince Charles: Middle East Christian persecution 'a tragedy'

Prince Charles has described threats to Christians in the Middle East as "an indescribable tragedy".

He made the comments in a message at the launch of a report by Catholic charity, Aid to the Church in Need.

This report said that religious freedom had deteriorated in 55 of the 196 countries studied in recent months.

The prince also said that faith leaders had a responsibility to ensure that people within their own traditions respect people of other faiths.
