Pope Francis who has ended his three days visit to Uganda on Sunday morning has arrived in the Central African Republic, a country torn apart by violence between Muslim rebels and Christian militias, on the last leg of his African tour.
There have been concerns about the pope’s safety ahead of his visit.
The Pope has said he is determined to bring a message of peace and hope to a country where elections are due to be held next month.
This is the third and last leg of his trip after visiting Uganda and Kenya.
During his visit, the pontiff will celebrate Mass in the capital, Bangui, but is also expected to meet Muslim leaders and visit a mosque in the city’s Muslim enclave, known as PK5.
