NO RESULT AFTER CONCLAVE'S TUESDAY MORNING VOTES

Vatican, Apr. 19 (CWNews.com) - Black smoke rose over the Sistine Chapel at midday on Tuesday, informing the faithful in St. Peter's Square that the cardinals had not yet chosen a new Pope.

The traditional signal of an inconclusive voting session came on schedule, just after noon. According to the schedule set in advance, the cardinals were to take two votes in the morning, burning the ballots and producing the telltale smoke after the second round of voting.

They will meet again in the afternoon, again taking two votes. Unless a new Pope is chosen, black smoke will be seen again at about 7 in the evening, Rome time.

Since the conclave is sealed, and no communication with the outside world allowed, there is no indication about the number of votes received by particular cardinals, or whether a decision is near.
