LIVE: Pope meets with members of Internally Displaced Persons Camps in South Sudan

In Freedom Hall, built after South Sudan's independence in 2011, Pope Francis, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and the Archbishop of Canterbury meet for an audience with members of the Internally Displaced Persons Camp.

After a welcome song, the Moderator of the Church of Scotland opens with prayer. Three children from camps in Bentiu, Malakal, and Juba give their testimonies.

The Archbishop of Canterbury offers a prayer before Pope Francis' speech. Then, the three religious leaders give their blessings. The meeting closes with a traditional dance.
