Pope Francis has asked to visit Greece to show support for refugees there, and Greek church authorities have approved plans for a papal trip to Lesbos, a church statement said Tuesday.

The Greek Orthodox church added that it had invited Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the head of the Eastern Orthodox Church, "so that he can honour Lesbos with his presence the day of Pope Francis's visit".
