    Pope Benedict spent the first of a three day trip to Lebanon urging Christians in the middle east not to leave, but to continue dialogue with their Muslim compatriots.

    He had gone to St Paul's Basilica in Harissa to the north of the capital Beirut as part of the trip, which is focusing on the promotion of harmony between the two religious groups.
