Pope Benedict XVI expressed in his Easter message on Sunday fears for Christians suffering "persecution and even death" in Pakistan.

"May the Risen Lord sustain the Christians who suffer persecution and even death for their faith, as for example in Pakistan," the 82-year-old pope said.

He also offered words of consolation to Christians in Iraq.
