First black smoke signals no new pope

- March 12, 2013 - Updated 2355 PKT - From Web Edition

VATICAN CITY: The first black smoke emerged from the chimney on the Sistine Chapel roof on Tuesday, signalling that the cardinals meeting in a secret conclave have failed in their first vote to elect a new pope.


As the smoke billowed out of the chimney, tens of thousands of onlookers in St Peter's Square cheered in excitement or booed in mock disappointment. (AFP)
