Pope Benedict Installation Mass Sunday Morning

Preparations for Sunday's installation mass of Pope Benedict XVI are  underway in Vatican City.

Security measures are being taken as Rome officials expect 500,000 visitors. A five mile no-fly zone will be put into effect around the Vatican, similar to the one imposed during Pope John Paul II's funeral.

You can watch the installation mass right here on NewsChannel 11 but you'll need to get up early. Coverage begins at 2:50 Sunday morning.
