Holy cities usher in Easter holiday

Per Channel News Asia, Christian pilgrims from around the world gathered at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem on Sunday to celebrate Easter, while those of the Jewish faith took part in Passover festivities.

Just hours earlier, thousands attended an Easter vigil Mass led by Pope Benedict XVI at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, according to the article.

Twitterers in Jerusalem spread holiday cheer and spoke of their plans.
