Pope Black smoke Sistine Chapel

VATICAN CITY – Black smoke billowing from the Sistine Chapel has let the world know there is no new pope after the first day of the conclave Tuesday.

The cardinals will now have a small dinner and will cast more ballots Wednesday in Rome.

White smoke will signal they have chosen a new leader of the Catholic Church.
