Vatican City, March 19 - Pope Francis toured St
Peter's Square in a jeep to salute the massive crowd assembled
for the inauguration mass of his papacy on Tuesday.
A huge wave of cheers greeted the pontiff, who was elected
Benedict XVI's successor at last week's conclave.
Francis stopped the jeep at one point to stoke and kiss two
children held out to him from the crowd, which was dotted with
the flags of countries from all over the world, including the
pope's native Argentina.
He also blessed the faithful, smiled and seemed to mouth
the word 'Ciao'.
After the tour, Francis went back inside to put on his
ceremonial vestments.
Delegations from over 130 governments are attending the
event.
