Almost a decade after he resigned from the papacy position, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has been confirmed dead at the age of 95, the Vatican announced.



His death on Saturday came days after Pope Francis had asked for prayers for his predecessor, saying he was “very sick”.

The Holy See Press Office said Benedict, the first German pope in 1,000 years, died in his residence at the Mater Ecclesiae monastery, which he had chosen as his residence after resigning in 2013.
