BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- A big crowd watching the papal installation ceremony from the central plaza of Buenos Aires has erupted in joy at the moment Pope Francis appeared.
The pope's fellow Argentineans are watching on four huge screens set up outside the Metropolitan Cathedral at different points in the Plaza de Mayo.
"Welcome to the Pope!" many shouted.
Many spent the entire night holding a vigil before Tuesday's ceremony began in the pre-dawn hours Argentina time.
Juan Martin Cazzos, a 16-year-old, says "It's an important day for all young people. We've been here since before midnight, listening and singing songs."
