According to the New York Times, white smoke  streamed from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel on Wednesday symbolizing that a new pope has been elected.  Bells were ringing and people were cheering in Vatican City after the 115 Cardinals came to a two-thirds majority on their fifth ballot.

The name of the newly-elected pope has not yet been released. He is expected to make an appearance on the balcony in the Vatican shortly.
