Pope Francis has celebrated a late-night Christmas Mass at the Vatican amid heavy security.

The head of the Catholic Church denounced the continuing suffering of children.

He mentioned those who faced hunger, danger on migration routes and bombing in Syrian cities such as Aleppo.

Those taking part in the service inside St Peter's Basilica had to pass through metal detectors.

There was a sense of insecurity at the Mass following recent terror attacks in Europe.
