Pope postpones trip to Lebanon for health reasons: minister

Pope Francis has postponed a trip to Lebanon initially planned for June over health concerns, Lebanon’s tourism minister Walid Nassar says.

Nassar does not elaborate on the “health reasons” behind the postponement, but the pope, who has suffered from pain in his knee, was seen using a wheelchair for the first time at a public event on Thursday.
