Large crowds have gathered in the biblical town of Bethlehem to begin Christmas Eve celebrations.

Meanwhile in St Peter's Basilica in Rome, Pope Francis is celebrating his first Christmas Eve Mass since becoming pontiff.

He earlier made a visit to Pope Emeritus Benedict, and said he found his predecessor looking well.

In Vatican City, a life-sized nativity scene has been unveiled in the centre of St Peter's Square.

On Christmas Day, Francis will deliver his Christmas message from the basilica's central balcony overlooking St Peter's Square.
