Pope gives prayer to empty St Peter's Square

Pope Francis has given a solitary prayer service to an empty St Peter's Square as Italy's coronavirus death toll passes 9,000.

The "Urbi et Orbi" usually happens twice a year - at Christmas and Easter - and this particular service was called "An Extraordinary Prayer in the Time of Pandemic".
