Pope Francis has called for Central American countries to show generosity in dealing with the rising numbers of Cuban migrants stranded in the region.

Several thousand Cubans are stranded at the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, hoping to reach the United States by land.

Nicaragua has refused to allow the migrants to pass through its territory.

The Pope said many of the Cubans passing through Central America were victims of human trafficking.
