Pope Francis has stepped up his criticism of Islamic State militants, accusing the group of "perverting" religion.
He said no religious group which used violence and oppression could claim to be "the armour of God".
Let no one consider themselves the 'armour' of God while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression.
Francis made his comments during a one-day visit to Albania, an impoverished Balkan country hailed by the pontiff as a model of inter-faith harmony because of good relations between its majority Muslim community and its Christian denominations.
