Election of new Pope could be just days away story image
VATICAN CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - After 5 days of private meetings, Cardinals say the election of a new Pope could be just days away.

Bells will ring and white smoke will flow from a chimney atop the Sistene Chapel when one Cardinal receives at least 77 votes.

The conclave to elect the last Pope, Benedict XVI, lasted two days.

One question facing the Cardinals is what kind of leader should guide the church, as it tries to rebuild public trust after child sex abuse controversies.
