SEOUL - Pope Francis on Monday called for peace and reconciliation on the divided Korean peninsula, wrapping-up a five day trip to South Korea and the first papal visit to Asia in 15 years.

"Today's Mass is first and foremost a prayer for reconciliation in this Korean family," Francis said, following up on an impromptu prayer on Friday when he urged Koreans to work to unite as one family, "with no victors or vanquished".
