He added, "I would like to mention, in particular, eighteen fishermen of different nationalities from Mazara del Vallo, in Sicily, who have been detained in Libya since the second of last September," adding that their families are still waiting for information about their loved ones.

"For this simple humanitarian reason, I appeal to the competent governments and national authorities to resolve this painful situation and find a positive solution through an open and honest dialogue," the Cardinal said.
