The Vatican City is seeing high drama with the conclave sitting together to elect a new president, people praying all day long at the square in front of the chapel and topless women protesting against the election of new pope. These women, who called themselves priests, launched pink smoke from another building overlooking St. Peter's Square in keeping with their demand for female ordination in the Vatican.
The members of the group known as Femen activist were detained by the police. Screaming and kicking, they shouted slogans as they were taken away far from the public view. Recently, before this they protested against Vatican's opposition to gay marriage, reported nationalpost.com.
Vatican, on the other hand is in conclave and the first day was not successful with black smoke coming out of the chimney that marked the fact that the cardinals were unable to reach a conclusion. The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI citing ill health came as a surprise and revealed corruption in the Vatican City.
Meanwhile, thousands of people braved the cold night rain at St. Peter's Square as they waited for a decision but were disappointed after three hours when black smoke billowed out of the chimney.
