MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis will visit Mexico next year for eight days from Feb. 12, Mexican Cardinal Norberto Rivera said on Sunday, according to local media reports.

A representative for the local archdiocese was not immediately available to confirm the reports.

A Vatican official said last month that Francis would visit Mexico next year.
