VILNIUS (Reuters) - Pope Francis arrived in Lithuania on Saturday at the start of a four-day visit to the Baltic states as they look warily towards a newly aggressive Russia nearly 30 years after they broke away from the then-Soviet Union.

The pope will spend two days in predominantly Catholic Lithuania before moving on to Latvia and then Estonia.
