Pope Francis, Ukrainian president’s estate, Turkey corruption protest, California couple discovers gold coin stash and more.
Feb. 26, 2014 In this picture provided by the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, 19-month-old Daniele De Sanctis, dressed up as a pope, is handed to Pope Francis, who was driving through the crowd during his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. During carnival in Italy, children often go to school and spend their weekends dressed up in costumes. Carnival, also known as mardi gras, marks the period before the church’s solemn Lenten season begins. Daniele’s mother, Paola Ciabattini, said she dressed her son as a pope in a demonstration of affection toward Francis. L’Osservatore Romano via AP Buy Photo
