ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Pope Francis flew out of Balice on Sunday (July 31) wrapping up his five-day visit to Poland. Francis was greeted by a huge crowd as he arrived to board his plane, following a whirlwind tour of the country, where he presided at the Catholic Church's World Youth Day festivities. The trip included a visit to the former Nazi death camp at Auschwitz on Friday (July 29) and a Mass in a large field on the outskirts of Krakow on Sunday. The Pope touched down on Wednesday (July 27) and commented on the killing of an elderly priest in France by suspected Islamist militants. Francis said the attack and a string of others were proof the "world is at war" but that it was not caused by religion. The trip has been marked by heavy security, including metal detectors and sniffer dogs at most events.
