Pope Francis waves as he arrives to lead a mass in KampalaBy Edith Honan KAMPALA (Reuters) - Pope Francis held a private meeting with South Sudan's President Salva Kiir on Friday, pushing for peace in the world's newest nation that has endured nearly two years of civil war, a Vatican spokesman said. "The reason for this meeting, the intention of the pope, was obviously in service of the peace and reconciliation in the land." The meeting at Uganda's State House soon after Francis arrived in the Ugandan capital Kampala on the second leg of his week-long Africa trip was arranged by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, said Lombardi. South Sudan, which gained its independence from Sudan in 2011, descended into civil war in December 2013 when a row between Kiir and his sacked deputy Riek Machar descended into fighting that often ran along ethnic fault lines between Kiir's Dinka and Machar's Nuer people.

Some 3,000 people including religious clergy, students and activists marched through the Philippine capital of Manila demanding curbs on emissions to mute the impact of climate change, which is blamed for a spike in disastrous extreme weather.
