Pope Francis has joined crowds of Roman Catholic pilgrims in Rio de Janeiro for a re-enactment of Jesus carrying the cross to his crucifixion.

The Stations of the Cross march comes on the Pope's fifth day in Brazil for World Youth Day - a weeklong event for more than a million young Christians.

Latin America's first pontiff met a group of prisoners and rode through cheering crowds in an open-top vehicle.

Julia Carneiro reports from Rio de Janeiro.
