Pope Francis has urged the world not to ignore the plight of millions of migrants "driven from their land", during Christmas Eve Mass.

The pontiff compared them to Mary and Joseph, recounting the Biblical story how they had to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem but found no place to stay.

Many migrants, he said, were being forced to flee from leaders who "see no problem in shedding innocent blood".

Pope Francis will give his traditional "Urbi et Orbi" Christmas address today.
