Pope Benedict XVI: Lying in state at the Vatican begins

BBC reported that tens of thousands of people were expected to pay their respects to former Pope Benedict XVI at his lying in state in the Vatican.

He died on New Year’s eve at the age of 95, almost a decade after he stood down because of ill health.

Pope Francis will preside over Thursday’s funeral – the first time a Pope will be buried by his successor.
