Pope Francis is heading to the Philippines for a five-day visit keenly awaited by the nation's 80 million Roman Catholics.

The highlight will be a huge open air Mass in the capital, Manila, tomorrow.

Other engagements include a visit to Tacloban to meet survivors of a devastating typhoon in November 2013.

Security will be tight after failed attempts to kill two previous Popes. Tens of thousands of soldiers and police have been deployed.
