Pope Francis pleads for 'holy' peace during Egypt visit
Pope Francis pleaded for peace in a visit to Egypt on Friday as he attended a service in solidarity with the embattled Coptic minority at a church bombed by the Islamic State group. Last December, the Saint Peter and Saint Paul church was itself targeted by a suicide bomber in an attack that killed 29 people. Francis had earlier met President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Ahmed al-Tayeb, the grand imam of the Al-Azhar institution, one of Muslim world's leading authorities, to push for dialogue between the two faiths.

A military airplane crashed into a mountain in Cuba's north-western region of Artemisa on Saturday morning, killing all eight personnel on board, the Ministry of Revolutionary Armed Forces said.

Leonardo DiCaprio used a standard, office file folder for his climate march sign, lol
Look, let me start by saying Leonardo DiCaprio has done a lot to combat climate change. He produced a climate change documentary titled Before the Flood that dropped in 2016. He has a foundation "dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth?s inhabitants." The foundation has given $61 million to causes that align with that mission statement. He talks about climate change all the time. And, also, he was among the ~200,000 people in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to protest a White House that very much does not share his (scientifically valid) concern for the damage people are doing to the climate. SEE ALSO: Trump's big EPA website change should make you furious It's just kind of funny that the man who has done all of the above couldn't get a sign for the protest that was bigger than a piece of computer paper. Like, at what point did DiCaprio realize he wanted a sign? Did he wake up in a hotel and say, "Shit, I forgot people were going to write things on posters and walk around with them at this thing I'm going to today," and then he went to the nearest Staples, a Staples with markers but without posterboard? Did the hotel have a green and a red marker and a file folder somewhere? Does he keep these things in a bag? Anyway, it's just funny.
