VATICAN-POPE-BALCONY-CURTAINS

Curtains are hanged on the central balcony of St Peter's basilica on the eve of the conclave on March 11, 2013 at the Vatican. Catholic cardinals had a final day of jockeying for position the same day before shutting themselves into the Sistine Chapel to elect a new pope after Benedict XVI's shock resignation, with an Italian and a Brazilian who both head powerful archdioceses among the top contenders.
