Vatican confirms Pope's visit to Holy Land

Pope Francis attends, in the Santa Sabina church in Rome on March 5, 2014.

The Vatican has confirmed today Pope Francis will visit the Holy Land in May, as scheduled, after Israeli media suggested the trip could be cancelled due to a strike held by officials of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

The Deputy Director of the Vatican's Press Office Ciro Benedettini assured nothing has changed and that a Vatican delegation headed by Alberto Gasbarri will travel to Israel within the next days to organize the Pontiff's trip.

The Pope's first visit to the Holy Land will be held between May 24 and 26, and will include visits to Aman, Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
