Pope pained by attacks in Afghanistan, Somalia, NY”

Pope Francis has disclosed that he sometimes falls asleep when he is praying, but that he doesn't consider it a problem.

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis, during his Angelus address on the feast of All Saints on Wednesday, expressed his deep sorrow following recent terrorist attacks in Somalia, Afghanistan and on Tuesday in NY.

The pontiff said he was praying that the "hearts of terrorists are converted and that the world would be freed from the hate and the murderous folly that abuses the name of God to disseminate death".

On Tuesday, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a truck through lower Manhattan, mowing down pedestrians. The attack, which was claimed by Africa's most deadly Islamic extremist group, Al-Shabab, took place just two weeks after another deadly blast in Somalia killed 350 people, marking the country's worst-ever terrorist attack. The explosion also left 20 people wounded.

In Afghanistan, an Islamic State suicide bomber killed 13 people October 31 after blowing himself up near the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.

Francis is often seen bowing his head and closing his eyes for a long period of time while he prays, the Guardian reported.
