Pope cancels engagements due to cold, need to rest ahead of trip

Pope Francis has cancelled his engagements for today because of a cold and will not make a planned visit to a Rome parish this weekend so that he can rest ahead of a trip to the Middle East next week, the Vatican said.

Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said there were no worries about the health of the 77-year-old pope and everything was "tranquil".

He said the pope was likely to resume his engagements on Saturday but that he would skip a visit to a sanctuary outside Rome that had been planned for Sunday so he could rest.
Francis is due to make a trip to Jordan, the Palestinian Territories and Israel May 24-26.
