Francis to head to US after Cuba visit

Posted: Updated:

HAVANA (AP) _ Pope Francis is spending much of the day concluding his visit to Cuba before flying to Washington to begin his first visit to the United States.        

The pope will celebrate Mass in eastern Cuba and visit a shrine to Cuba's patron saint.        

Yesterday, after Mass in Havana, Francis met with President Raul Castro and his brother, Fidel, the former president who shaped Cuba for the last half of the 20th century.
