Pope Benedict XVI set off from Rome on an arduous journey to Latin America on Friday where he will address key issues including the Mexico drugs war and the evolution of Cuba's communist regime. He called for a fight against the "evil" of drug cartels just hours before he was to arrive in violence-plagued Mexico on his first trip to Spanish-speaking Latin America. The pontiff, who turns 85 next month, will visit Silao, Leon and Guanajuato in Mexico until Monday and then spend two days in Cuba, in Santiago de Cuba and Havana.
