Pope Francis said Wednesday that incarceration cannot be the only solution for Mexico's crime problems, as he visited a prison days after a riot killed 49 inmates at another penitentiary.
"The problem of security is not resolved only by incarcerating; rather, it calls us to intervene by confronting the structural and cultural causes of insecurity that impact the entire social framework," Francis told hundreds of inmates at the prison in Ciudad Juarez.
