Pope to visit United Arab Emirates in February
Pope Francis will visit Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates from Feb. 3 to 5, where he will take part in an international "interfaith" meeting, the Vatican said Thursday.

The pontiff was invited to the majority-Muslim country by both Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and the local Catholic church, the statement said.
