Pope demands justice for Argentina bombing of Jewish center in smartphone video shot by friend

Pope Francis is demanding justice for the victims of Argentina's worst terrorist attack. And he's doing with what is increasingly becoming his signature way of communicating: an amateur smartphone video message, recorded on the fly by a visiting friend in the comfort of Francis' Vatican hotel room.

To be aired Friday during the official commemoration of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people, the video is the latest evidence that Francis has no qualms about circumventing the Vatican's media machine to get his message out — for better or worse.

A close friend of the pope's, Claudio Epelman, executive director of the Latin American Jewish Congress, shot the video last month on his Samsung phone when he visited Francis at the Vatican.
