Pope Francis reaches out to migrants on Lesbos visit

Pope Francis has taken 12 Syrian migrants back with him to the Vatican after visiting a camp on the Greek island of Lesbos.

The three families, including six children, are all Muslim and had their homes bombed during the war in Syria.

Thousands of migrants are now stuck on Lesbos after last month's EU-Turkey deal aimed at easing the flow.
