Paris' players celebrate after their forward Edinson Cavani scored a goal during the French League Cup final football match against Lyon on April 19, 2014 at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, north of ParisParis Saint-Germain won France's League Cup on Saturday, beating Lyon 2-1 in the final at the Stade de France to secure the first leg of a likely domestic double. Edinson Cavani was the match-winner for Laurent Blanc's side, scoring a first-half brace, one of which came from the penalty spot, and while Alexandre Lacazette pulled a goal back in the second half, PSG proved just too strong for a Lyon side who had beaten them in Ligue 1 just six days earlier. It is the second trophy won by the club from the French capital since their takeover by Qatar Sports Investments in 2011 and subsequent transformation into one of the wealthiest clubs in Europe, following their title triumph last season.

(AP Photo/Dan Balilty)JERUSALEM (AP) — The dark hall inside Christianity's holiest shrine was illuminated with the flames from thousands of candles on Saturday as worshippers participated in the holy fire ceremony, a momentous spiritual event in Orthodox Easter rites.
