PHOTOS: Easter around the world

On Easter Sunday, the most holy day of the Christian calendar, believers attended religious services - whether among the packed crowds before a new pope in St. Peter's Square or at sunrise services in India and Pakistan. Here are some scenes from Easter Sunday around the world.
