London: Pope Francis has criticised the naming of the US military's largest non-nuclear explosive ever used in combat as "the mother of all bombs", reports BBC.
"I was ashamed when I heard the name," the pontiff told an audience of students at the Vatican.
"A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is going on?" he asked.
Last month the US dropped such a bomb, which weighs 21,600lb (9,800kg), on Islamic State militants in Afghanistan.
The Pentagon said it was dropped from a US aircraft in Nangarhar province, targeting a tunnel complex used by IS.
The explosive is officially called the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), but is widely known as "the mother of all bombs".
