Will the Roman Catholic Church's cardinals elect a pope today, the first full day of their conclave? If so, they'll have to make it happen in their afternoon session.
Black smoke rose from the chimney fixed to the roof of the Sistine Chapel on Wednesday morning, indicating that the cardinals' first two votes of the day were inconclusive. The cardinals also didn't come to a conclusion on Tuesday evening, which was their first vote.
They will have two more opportunities to vote on Wednesday afternoon, after they have lunch.
We have a number of features to inform you about the process. Our full story on Wednesday's activities can be found here. But also check out:
