CNN Coverage: Pope Benedict Resigns

Pope Benedict surprised the world by announcing he’s resigning “because of advanced age.”  CNN’s Chris Cuomo led the network’s morning coverage (video link: http://on.cnn.com/Y4Jry7).  Ben Wedeman, Jim Bittermann, Max Foster and Jose Levy lead the network’s coverage from Rome.  Wedeman is CNN’s senior international correspondent based in Rome since November.  Previously, Wedeman was based in Cairo and led CNN’s coverage of the uprising against then-President Hosni Mubarak.  CNN.com will also have the latest news and analysis on CNN’s Belief Blog.
