Back in Italy

Pope Benedict XVI (right) is greeted Cardinal Pelvi upon his arrival at Rome Ciampino airport on Monday. Pope Benedict XVI landed back in Italy after ending his first tour of Africa, the AIDS-ravaged continent, during which he made repeated calls for African leaders to battle corruption, fight poverty and quell conflicts, but struggled to get across his message for better governance because of the uproar that erupted before he even landed in Cameroon, after he told reporters on his plane that condom use could be aggravating the AIDS crisis.
