VATICAN CITY - Pope Benedict called for dialogue to prevail over violence in both Libya and Syria on Sunday, denouncing bloodshed and the killing of civilians.

"I am following with grave concern the dramatic conflict in Libya that has caused a high number of victims and suffering, mostly among the civilian population," the Pope said in an address after the Regina Caeli prayer.

"I am renewing a pressing appeal for negotiations and dialogue to prevail over violence," he said.

He also urged Syrian authorities to do everything possible for the common good and pay heed to the "legitimate aspirations for a future of peace and stability" in the country.
