Argentina's youths gear up to see pope

Youth from poor neighbourhood set to join thousands of young Roman Catholics in Brazil for papal visit.

    Pope Francis is from Argentinia and his first foreign tour is creating a huge interest in his home country.

    Some young Argentineans from a poor neighbourhood will be able to travel to Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro to see the pope, thanks to scholarships offered by the Archbishop’s office.
