Pope Francis comforts jailed dad of slain toddler on visit to Italy's south

CASSANO ALL'JONIO, Italy -- Pope Francis offered words of sympathy Saturday to the imprisoned father of a slain toddler during a visit to prison to a southern Italian region infested by one of the world's most powerful crime syndicates.

Local organizers of the pope's one-day pilgrimage to Calabria said the pontiff first spoke to some 200 men and women held in the prison in the town of Castrovillari.
