Pope Francis left Iraq by plane on Monday morning after a triumphant first papal visit to the country.
The Pope's busy four-day trip saw him visit Baghdad, Najaf, Ur, Nassiriya, Mosul, Erbil, and Qaraqosh.
He met with members of the country's Christian minority, politicians and the country's most senior Shiite cleric, promoting a message of hope and tolerance across the country.
