Pope Francis has delivered a passionate plea for peace in his first Easter Sunday message since being elected.

 

Francis used his "Urbi et Orbi" address to call for peace in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, where he singled out "above all dear Syria".

 

Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar and pilgrims have attended church across the world.

 

Pope Francis concluded by saying: "Peace in the whole world, still divided by greed looking for easy gain, wounded by the selfishness which threatens human life and the family, selfishness that continues in human trafficking, the most extensive form of slavery in this 21st Century.
