Pope goes to Africa

Pope Francis waves as he boards an aircraft on his way to Maputo, Mozambique, in Rome's Fiumicino International airport on Wednesday. Pope Francis heads this week to the southern African nations of Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius, visiting some of the world's poorest countries in a region hit hard by some of his biggest concerns: conflict, corruption and climate change.
