Pope Francis wrapped up on Wednesday his trip to Hungary and Slovakia, during which he urged the predominantly Catholic countries not to close up and to avoid using religion for politics. On the last day of his journey, Francis presided over an open air Mass for more than 50,000 people at a national shrine in Western Slovakia, traditionally popular with women in difficult marriages.

LONDON (Reuters) -British Prime Minister Boris Johnson reshuffled his senior ministers on Wednesday, appointing his party's first female foreign secretary, as he urged his government to get on with the job of tackling economic inequality after COVID-19. Ending regional inequality is key to the agenda set in 2019 when Johnson won the biggest Conservative Party parliamentary majority since Margaret Thatcher.
