Pope visits Cuba


SANTIAGO, CUBA (WKOW)--Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Cuba on Monday and was greeted by more than 300 Cuban-Americans, some of whom have not been back to the island since their families fled more than a half century ago.

The Pope landed in Santiago, where he met with Cuban President Raul Castro.  The two were also to meet with retired, long time leader Fidel Castro.

The Pontiff visited Mexico prior to Cuba and is scheduled to be on the island for three days.
