The Pope in Jordan

Pope Benedict XVI sits next to Jordan's King Abdullah II and Queen Rania as they arrive Sunday at Wadi Kharar on the Banks of the River Jordan, believed to be the site where John the Baptist baptised Jesus Christ. The pontiff laid foundation stones for two new Catholic churches during his visit to the "Bethany Beyond the Jordan". It's the third day of the pontiff's eight-day Holy Land pilgrimage.
