Brazil crowds greet Pope Francis in Rio

Pope Francis has been greeted by tens of thousands of Brazilian pilgrims as he began his first trip abroad since becoming head of the Catholic Church.

The first Latin American Pope toured Rio de Janeiro in an open car and then met President Dilma Rousseff at the state governor's palace.

After he left, police fired tear gas to disperse protests against both the government and the cost of the visit.

He is in Brazil to attend the Roman Catholic World Youth Day festival.

In a speech soon after his arrival, the Pope urged young Catholics to "make disciples of all nations".
