Pope Benedict arrives for three-day Cuba visit

Pope Benedict XVI has begun a three-day visit to Cuba - the first papal visit to the communist-run island for 14 years.

The Pope, who flew in from Mexico, was welcomed to the eastern city of Santiago by President Raul Castro.

The pontiff said he had come as a pilgrim of charity, and would pray for peace, liberty and reconciliation.

Ian Pannell reports from Havana.
