LUANDA - Pope Benedict XVI said Mass for up to a million people yesterday and prayed for two youths killed in a stadium stampede at one of his events the day before.

"I would like to include a particular remembrance at this Mass for the two young people who lost their lives while entering the Coqueiros Stadium," he said at the start of a huge open-air Mass in the Angolan capital Luanda on the last day of his African trip.

"We trust that Jesus will embrace them in his kingdom. I express my solidarity to their families and friends and my deep pain because this happened while they were coming to see me," he said.

Two teenage girls were killed in a stampede to enter the stadium in central Luanda several hours before the pope presided at a youth rally attended by more than 30000 people on Saturday. - Reuters
