Pope Francis celebrates Easter mass in St. Peters Square. Hundreds of thousands join the Pope's first Easter as the leaders of the Catholic Church. He later joins the crowd and embraces a child. In the Central African Republic the sound of music as the faithful mark the day. This year the service comes a week after a coup that has plunged the country into chaos.
