About 100,000 Catholics have gathered at St Peter's Square for the funeral of Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday. Benedict, the first pope to resign from the post in 600 years, died aged 95 on Saturday. He became pontiff in 2005 replacing John Paul II and stepped down in 2013. Pope Francis became the first pope in modern history of the church to oversee the burial of his predecessor. Pope Benedict spent three days lying in state at St Peter’s Basilica, where mourners were able to pay tribute to him.
