Pope's Tour Focuses on Poor, Violent, Neglected in South America


Pope Francis is wrapping up a weeklong tour of Latin America with a visit to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Paraguay's capital, Asuncion. The pontiff's second trip to the continent since his election to the papacy in 2013 included stops in Ecuador and Bolivia, countries ridden by poverty and crime. Zlatica Hoke reports the pope returns to the Vatican Sunday after the start of a landmark trial in the Roman Catholic Church.
