Vatican     POPE'S APPEAL FOR LEBANON
Pope John Paul II made an impassioned appeal to the Government of Lebanon on Wednesday to protect its citizens against sectarian strife.
   In a letter to Cardinal Nasrallah Butros Sfeir, the Pope said: "I ask all Christians to feel solidarity with the population of south Lebanon, who fear their future as a result of the situation which has emerged in the last couple of days.
   "I feel compelled to remind all those in positions of responsibility of their primary obligation: to respect the rights of the individual and of the people, and to avoid taking any action which may endanger the population or threaten coexistence among the communities."
