Pope Francis has told clergy in South Sudan to raise their voices against injustice, on an unprecedented trip to the war-torn country. On the first full day of his visit, Pope Francis met hundreds of South Sudan's religious leaders at the Cathedral of Saint Therese in the capital Juba. Elsewhere in Juba on Saturday, Archbishop Justin Welby said: "My heart breaks, I can hardly speak, with sorrow for South Sudan." It is Pope Francis' first papal visit to the country. The three Christian leaders are leading a joint prayer on Saturday evening at the mausoleum of John Garang, South Sudan's founding father.
