Pope Benedict's 'message of hope' for Africa

Pope Benedict is hoping to deliver the message that Africa is "a continent of hope" during his visit to Benin, according to the BBC's David Willey.

The pontiff is in Africa to present plans by the Roman Catholic church to encourage reconciliation, but is also expected to issue a warning against witchcraft.
