The bells rang after a confusing smoke signal that Vatican Radio initially suggested was black but then declared was too difficult to call. White smoke is used to announce a pope\'s election to the world.

\"It\'s only been 24 hours, surprising how fast he was elected,\" Vatican Radio said, commenting on how the new pope was elected after just four or five ballots.

More pilgrims were pouring into St. Peter\'s Square, and the bells were still pealing 10 minutes after the original tolling.

The 265th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church succeeds John Paul II, who gained extraordinary popularity over a 26-year pontificate, history\'s third-longest papacy. Millions mourned him around the world in a tribute to his charisma.
