Pope Francis in Manila urges leaders to end corruption

From The BBC-

Pope Francis has called on leaders to fight corruption and end "scandalous" social inequalities, on the first full day of his visit to the Philippines.

The Pope was speaking at a welcome ceremony at the presidential palace hosted by President Benigno Aquino.

He then went on to celebrate Mass in the capital's Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

The pontiff was greeted by huge crowds as he arrived in the overwhelmingly Catholic country on Thursday.
