Christians are marking Good Friday with processions and services all around the world.
Pilgrims carried crosses in the Holy Land. They believe their journey re-traced the steps Jesus Christ took through Jerusalem before he was crucified.
Greek clergymen led a Good Friday service atop a hill in Athens; they then removed an icon of Jesus from a cross and placed the icon inside a cave.
In New York City, hundreds of people joined a Good Friday procession across the Brooklyn Bridge. They passed Ground Zero on their way to a historic church in Lower Manhattan.
