Friday’s Pictures in the News begins in Israel, where Christian Arab worshipers carry a large wooden cross along the Via Dolorosa as they enter the Church of the Holy Sepulchre during the Good Friday procession in Jerusalem. Thousands of Christian pilgrims took part in procession along the route where, according to tradition, Jesus Christ carried the cross on the way to his Crucifixion. Other Good Friday events around the globe include an actor portraying the part of Jesus Christ nailed to the cross during a performance in Trafalgar Square in London; hundreds of faithful participating in a Good Friday procession in Paraty, Brazil; and dancers dressed in body stockings with skeletons painted on them and carrying symbols to stir people in Spain.
