Pope Benedict adds Arabic to weekly Vatican address

The head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has for the first time spoken in Arabic during his weekly address to pilgrims to the Vatican.

"The Pope prays for all the Arabic-speaking people. May God bless you all," The Pope said.
The introduction of a sixth language is to express support for Christians in the Middle East, officials said.
The Vatican said Arabic was also introduced to remind all faiths to pray for peace in the region.
At the weekly papal audience which draws pilgrims from many countries, a priest read a summary of the Pope's address in Arabic for the first time, joining other briefs in French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Slovak, Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Russian.
