With the funeral of Pope John Paul II ticking closer, security forces in Rome increase. A no-fly zone over Rome and the second airport Ciampino closed to commercial flights.

Thousands of mourners flock into St. Peter's Square for the requiem mass, many camping overnight. People are continuing to arrive by any means to attend the service, including many from Poland, the pope's homeland.  Millions are expected to watch the ceremony on tv.  It will be broadcast live around the world.

Leaders of over 100 nations have gathered to pay their last repects to a great man - Pope John Paul II.
