Politics and the Pope

Will the Pope's visit to Cuba change anything, and what does the Trayvon Martin case tell us about America? It's all in today's pick of the world papers.

El Pais says the aim of the Pope's visit to Cuba isn't really to change the regime there, but rather to increase the Church's influence, while the Miami Herald says the visit is good PR for lots of people, but won't really change anything.

The Daily Beast looks at the Congressman thrown out of the House for wearing a hoodie in tribute to Trayvon Martin - while the Huffington Post is asking what the story tells us about America.

The Guardian goes back over the case of 63 African migrants who died stranded on a boat in the Mediterranean last year - and tries to find out who was responsible.
