GREECE EASTER

Rockets fly over the bell towel of Panagia Erithiani church, during Greek Orthodox Easter celebrations on the eastern Aegean island of Chios, late Saturday, April 19, 2014. Thousands of handmade rockets are fired every year on Great Saturday night, before the Resurrection, by locals of the two rival churches of Agios Markos and Panagia Erithiani, in the village of Vrontados. The tradition is 125 years old, but locals say it could be even older. (AP Photo/Petros Giannakouris)
