A major arms fair in London has drawn fire from Catholic bishops and justice and peace groups who say the trade in weaponry fuels conflict around the world. In a joint statement, they criticized the DSEI arms fair, which will bring together more than 1,600 companies that develop, manufacture and sell a vast range of weaponry. They said such events, which will run at London’s Docklands from Sept. 14-17, were part of a trade that Pope Francis had claimed was “drenched in blood.”
