Vatican City  Pope Francis is praying for victims of a powerful earthquake in southern Mexico.

Francis closed his cuff during his weekly general audience Wednesday to express solidarity with Mexico. Speaking in his native Spanish, Francis said: "Yesterday's violent earthquake caused havoc, injuries and heavy casualties in the south of Mexico. Pray for them. God and the help of our brothers give them strength and support. Brothers and sisters, I am very close to you. "
