Correction: Pope-The Latest story

HAVANA (AP) — In a story Sept. 19 about the papal visit to Cuba, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Univision gave the pope a copy of an Emmy award. The gift was from Telemundo.

A corrected version of the sentry is below:

HAVANA (AP) — The latest developments in Pope Francis' visit to Cuba and the United States. All times local:

6:50 p.m.

Pope Francis offered a taste of his homeland to journalists en route to Havana.

Flight attendants passed around meat-filled empanadas to the 75 reporters traveling on the papal plane, saying they were a special gift of the pope from the front of the aircraft.

The pope got a few gifts in return, including an Emmy award. Telemundo correspondent Rogelio Mora-Tagle gave the pope an official copy of the winged statue that the Spanish-language broadcaster won in 2014 for its breaking news coverage of the 2013 conclave that elected Francis as pope.

"I told him it's not just an award, it's the work of all my colleagues," Mora-Tagle said.
