WASHINGTON -

Washington's Archbishop, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, is returning from Rome, where he took part in the papal conclave.

Wuerl is expected to return to the Washington area by plane on Wednesday afternoon. This was the first time that Wuerl, who became a cardinal in 2010, has participated in the conclave.

Of the 115 cardinals who elected the new pope, 11 were Americans, second in number only to the Italians.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, was chosen on the fifth ballot and became Pope Francis.

    White flags raised at Brooklyn Bridge

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.
