Bo Xilai caused serious harm, new Chongqing leader says
Bo's successor Zhang Deijiang attacks him because he "gravely damaged the party and nation's image" in this scandal. Now we must "uphold the principle that all are equal before the law" and go back to harmonious development.

Chongqing (AsiaNews) - Bo Xilai and his time in office "have gravely damaged the party and nation's image," said Zhang Dejiang, Bo's successor as Chongqing party chief. Chongqing must now own up to what happened, which harmed to the leadership. Still, for Zheng, too much attention has been given to the case.

Bo Xilai, former Chongqing party chief and Politburo member, was thrown out of the Communist Party and is now under investigation. His wife has been accused of murdering British businessman Neil Heywood, who was found dead last November.

The economic and legal scandals that followed their fall have been described as another Tiananmen for the party.

Speaking at the city's Communist Party congress, Zhang boasted about Chongqing's development, but said it was being overshadowed by the clouds swirling around Bo.

Many things must still be done before anyone can feel satisfied. Now we must "Resolutely uphold the principle that all are equal before the law, and never let any person or group put themselves above the law," he said.

"Stop! I am asking you with all my heart. Stop!" says pope as he speaks out on the Middle East, Iraq and Ukraine He mentions children, victims of war, "from whom we take away the hope for a decent life," urging the parties to address "every diatribe with the tenacity of dialogue and negotiation and the power of reconciliation". As tomorrow marks 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, "a day of mourning," we should learn the lessons of history. The Gospel makes us know the true Jesus, the living Jesus, who speaks to the heart and is a life changer as he was for Saint Francis of Assisi. "The joy of finding the treasure of the Kingdom of God comes through, can be seen. Christians cannot hide their faith."

Pope: I am with the persecuted Christians of Mosul and the Middle East "May the God of peace inspire in all a genuine desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence is never defeated with violence. Violence is defeated with peace." At the Sunday Angelus Francis comments on the parable of the wheat and the weeds. God is "patient" He knows "the same weeds in the end, may become good wheat". But "at the time of the harvest, that is, of judgment, the reapers will execute the order of the master separating the weeds to be burned".
