Argentina's Jorge Bergoglio, elected Pope Francis, waves from St Peter's Basilica's balcony
White smoke billows from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel meaning that a new pope has been chosen on March 13, 2013 at the Vatican. Argentina's Jorge Bergoglio, elected Pope Francis, later appeared on the St Peter's Basilica's balcony after being elected the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church. He becomes the first non-European pope in nearly 1,300 years. UPI/Stefano Spaziani
