Pope Francis has begun a three-day pastoral visit in Hungary - his first full trip to the country since he became Pope 10 years ago.

What kept him away was the tough anti-migrant stance of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, in contrast to the 86-year-old pontiff's compassion for all refugees.

What brings him here now, besides his support for Catholics, is the war in Ukraine.

During a speech in Budapest, the pope warned of the dangers of nationalism and called for a more welcoming attitude towards refugees.
