Pope Francis celebrates Mass in Ecuador on his Latin America tour

Hundreds of thousands of people have gathered in the Ecuadorean port city of Guayaquil to greet Pope Francis.

The pontiff waved to the crowds from his custom car ahead of an open-air mass in the city's Samanes Park, where his sermon focussed on the importance of family as ''the first school for children''.
