Visitors to London’s Trafalgar Square on Friday were treated to the sight of actors pretending to murder a mutilated man.

Dressed in Roman garb, "soldiers" not only hoisted the half-naked, badly beaten victim, but also left him there where he pretended to die.

The 'Passion of Jesus' reenactment has become a staple of Good Friday in the capital in recent years. The "crucifixion" is often followed by an Easter egg hunt for children.
