Pope Francis celebrated Easter Sunday mass with tens of thousands of people who faced heavy security checks in St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican.

Potted hyacinths, tulips and daffodils, as well as bouquets of pink roses, were arranged in neat rows on the steps leading to the imposing church.

Security, already deployed in holy week ceremonies, included armed police positioned on rooftops and metal detectors.
