The Vatican’s chief spokesman hinted that Pope John Paul II may address Austrian right-wing leader Jorg Haider on human rights issues when the two meet Saturday. Jewish and other groups plan to protest the meeting, at which Haider will officially present the pope with this year’s Vatican Christmas tree. The tree comes from Austria’s Carinthia region, where Haider is governor.
