Pope Francis is due to appoint 19 new cardinals at a ceremony in Rome - the first such appointments of his tenure.

Cardinals are the most senior Roman Catholic clergymen below the pontiff.

Correspondents says the inclusion of prelates from places like Haiti and Burkina Faso reflects the Argentine Pope's commitment to the poor.

The new cardinals will receive the traditional red hat and robes at a formal ceremony known as a consistory.
