RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — There's one last rally in Rio for Pope Francis, who is expected to draw millions of people for Mass today on the white sands of Copacabana beach.

Rapturous crowds have been the rule during the pope's visit to Brazil during the World Youth Day celebration.

A vigil on the beach last night drew a reported 3 million flag-waving, rosary-toting faithful, who overflowed Copacabana beach's 2.5 miles of white sand.

Rio's mayor estimates that Francis might draw another 3 million people today.

Yesterday's vigil capped a busy day for the pope in which he drove home a message he has emphasized throughout the week in speeches, homilies and off-the-cuff remarks: the need for Catholics, lay and religious, to shake up the status quo, get out of their stuffy sacristies and reach the faithful on the margins of society or risk losing them to rival churches.

HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a gunman who barricaded himself with hostages inside a South Florida apartment complex has killed six people before being shot to death by a SWAT team.

Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez tells The Associated Press the hours-long standoff began around 6:30 p.m. EDT in a five-story building in Hialeah, just a few miles north of Miami.

He says the bodies of three women and two men were found throughout the apartment complex after police arrived. Another man was killed across the street when the gunman allegedly spotted him and took aim.

Rodriguez says the two hostages the man took were unharmed. Before the shootout, police had been able to communicate with the gunman.

Rodriguez says police were still investigating the motive and identifying the gunman and victims.

CAIRO (AP) — Clashes between security forces and supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi have now killed nearly 40 people.

A doctor at the Islamist-led rally in Cairo says the overnight night clashes have overwhelmed the field hospital operating from the sit-in where the protesters have been camped for over three weeks.

Police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of Morsi supporters near the sit-in, setting off clashes that lasted for hours— in a possible sign of a new intolerance for marches that block city streets.

The clashes erupted following a day when millions took to the streets answering a call from the army chief, who said he wanted a mandate to stop "potential terrorism" by Morsi supporters.
