Pope lands in conflict-ridden Central African Republic

Mon, 12/07/2015 - 18:07 -- Henri Ahyite

Pope Francis landed in conflict-ridden Central African Republic on Sunday, flying in from Uganda to what is considered the most dangerous destination on his three-nation Africa tour.

Thousands of believers, many from neighbouring countries, are expected to pour into CAR's capital Bangui to see the 78-year-old pontiff on his landmark visit to one of Africa's poorest and most unstable countries.
