The World

Pope John Paul II returned home after a 10-day tour of southern Africa. The trip took him to Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique, with an unexpected stop in South Africa because of bad weather in Lesotho. The Pope’s Alitalia Boeing 747 landed in Rome after a 10-hour flight from Mozambique. A helicopter was waiting to take him to his summer residence, Castel Gandolfo, but a rain squall forced the Pope to leave the airport in a car.
