Soldier's parents appeal to Pope

THE PARENTS OF one of the three Israeli soldiers kidnapped in Lebanon and Gaza last summer have appealed to Benedict XVI to help secure their release.

Shlomo and Mild Goldwasser personally handed the Pontiff a letter last week at the end of the general audience, held in Paul VI Hall. The note called on Benedict XVI to intervene to bring about a speedy and unconditional liberation of the three soldiers.

Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev have been held prisoners by Hezbollab in southern Lebanon since last July, and Gilad Shalit was captured in Gaza by the Palestinian group Hamas last June. There has been no recent news of any of them.
