Pope John Paul II on Saturday warned this nation's youth, who within the last two weeks have been participating in a wave of lethal political riots, to "reject violence, lies and scorn" and to overcome their uneasiness over their future in a land of rising unemployment and poverty. The Pope's remarks came as he addressed a rally of about 20,000 young people from all over Madagascar on his first full day on the island nation off the east coast of Africa. The Pope also held a Mass in the old Portuguese port of Antsiranana at the island's northern tip. John Paul will continue his fifth African tour with stops in the French island colony of La Reunion, Zambia and Malawi before returning to Rome on May 6. His address to the Malagasy youth at a soccer stadium here in the capital largely took the form of responses to questions prepared by church youth leaders.
