Black Smoke on Day Two of Papal Conclave

No pope elected yet


Day two of the papal conclave dawned under more stormy skies Wednesday as the 115 cardinals gathered inside the Sistine Chapel to select the next pope failed to do so in a fresh round of voting.

The lack of agreement on Wednesday morning over who should be the next leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics sent a plume of black smoke billowing from the Sistine's Chapel's chimney.
