Conclave underway as cardinals gather in Sistine Chapel to vote for next pope
The Sistine Chapel set up for the beginning of the conclave, at the Vatican. Cardinals will walk up to the main alter which is right below Michelangelo's painting of the "Last Judgement" and they drop the ballot into the urn in full view of the other cardinals. (AP Photo/L'Osservatore Romano, ho)
