WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- At approximately 6:40 a.m. our time, cameras caught black smoke pouring from the Sistine Chapel chimney. The smoke signal indicates that after another vote, cardinal electors have not decided on a new pope. They need a two-thirds majority vote to elect the next pope.

The cardinals will reconvene around noon (D.C. time) for an afternoon session to choose the new Pope.

While waiting for the next smoke signal, WUSA 9's Bruce Johnson talked to the crowd waiting in St. Peter's Square. See their comments and reactions in the video above.
