Pope Francis on Saturday arrived in Sarajevo on a one-day visit aimed at bolstering reconciliation between the country's Serb, Croat and Muslim communities.

The pontiff's plane landed at Sarajevo's airport at 0700 GMT. Francis is the second pope to visit Sarajevo. Jean-Paul II famously visited during a severe snowstorm in 1997 and six years later the Polish pope returned to Bosnia for a visit to the Bosnian Serb capital Banja Luka.
