Pope tells Cuba communism has failed


Pope Benedict XVI is now in Cuba for the second leg of his trip that's already seen him visit Mexico.

He touched down in Santiago de Cuba where he was met by the country's President Raul Castro.

This is the second-ever Papal visit to Cuba since thousands flocked to Havana to see Pope John Paul II in the late 1990's.
