Taize community in mourning

Brother Roger Murdered

AP, PARIS - The 90-year-old founder of a Christian ecumenical community was stabbed to death in front of thousands of worshippers during an evening prayer service, a killing deplored Wednesday by Pope Benedict XVI and by the head of the Anglican Church, who called the slain man ''one of the best-loved Christian leaders of our time.''

We join the world in mourning this loss.
