Pope wraps up Cuba trip

Posted: Updated:

SANTIAGO, Cuba (AP) _ Pope Francis has wrapped up his final formal event in Cuba.         During a visit to the eastern city of Santiago, the pope called on Cubans to strengthen the bonds of family, which he calls ``true spaces of freedom.''

He says the breakup of families fragments societies or makes them uniform. He says that in both cases, ``people turn into isolated individuals, easy to manipulate and to rule.''        

After the remarks at the Cathedral of Santiago, he's heading to catch a flight to Washington to begin the U.S. leg of his trip.
