Feuding Anglicans call in mediators

Alexandria, Egypt, 06 Feb-(ANA)-Leaders of the Anglican Communion are to employ professional mediators in an attempt to resolve their ongoing dispute over sexuality.

The announcement came at the close of a five-day meeting of senior bishops held in Alexandria, Egypt.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, said there was "deep division" among member churches.

But he added that "the willingness to find reconciliation has been very much in evidence".

The meeting was significant simply for bringing all the national leaders together - after several large African churches boycotted last summer's Lambeth Conference. (ANA)
