**世界各国政要出席教宗方济的即位弥撒**

星期二,来自130国家的政治领导人和不同宗教的代表将参加教宗方济的即位弥撒,梵蒂冈已为接待众多来宾做好准备。

预计将有数十万人聚集在圣彼得广场参加庆祝仪式,届时教宗方济将正式成为全世界12亿罗马天主教徒的领袖。

在高层来宾中,预计东正教领袖巴塞洛缪将出席仪式。自从基督教于将近1千年前分为罗马天主教和东正教两支以来,这将是伊斯坦布尔东正教教廷领袖首次出席罗马天主教教宗的即位典礼。

来自其他基督教会的30多个代表团以及犹太教、伊斯兰教和其他教派的代表们也将出席仪式。

** World Dignitaries Present at Vatican for Pope's Inaugural Mass**

The Vatican is prepared for a huge crowd Tuesday as Pope Francis hosts political leaders from 130 nations and representatives from a variety of religions for his installation Mass.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to pack St. Peter's Square for the celebration, which formally installs Francis as the new leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics.

Among the high-level guests, the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians, Bartholomew, is expected to attend. He would be the first patriarch from the Istanbul-based church to witness a papal inauguration since the two branches of Christianity split nearly 1,000 years ago.

More than 30 delegations of other Christian churches, as well as representatives from the Jewish, Muslim and various other faiths, also will attend.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner arrived prior to Tuesday, in order to meet with the new pope, who hails from her country. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, a Catholic, also is one of the political leaders in attendance.

**伊拉克发生袭击事件23人丧生**

伊拉克官员说,首都巴格达的什叶派穆斯林聚居区发生爆炸和其他袭击事件,造成至少23人死亡。

星期二的暴力事件还造成80人受伤。再过一天,就是美国领导的出兵伊拉克10周年。

目前还没有人宣称对袭击事件负责。

伊拉克的逊尼派穆斯林激进分子经常袭击占人口多数的什叶派穆斯林,导致教派之间的紧张局面,并削弱什叶派主导的政府。

** Attacks Kills 23 in Iraq**

Iraqi officials say bombings and other attacks have killed at least 23 people in mainly Shi'ite areas of the capital, Baghdad.

The violence Tuesday also wounded 80 others, a day before the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

Sunni Muslim militants in Iraq frequently attack the country's majority Shi'ites to inflame sectarian tensions and undermine the Shi'ite-led government.
