Egypt's Copts choose new pope for uncertain times - Article Photos 9/10

Egyptian Copts and clergymen walk past an election poster with pictures and names of the three candidates, Father Raphael Ava Mina, left, Anba Tawadros, center and Anba Raphael, right and Arabic that reads "the structural elections, November 4, 2012," following the papal election ceremony at the Coptic Cathedral in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012. Egypt's ancient Coptic Christian church chose a new pope in an elaborate Sunday ceremony meant to invoke the will of God, in which a blindfolded boy drew the name of the next patriarch from a crystal chalice. Bishop Tawadros will be ordained Nov. 18 as Pope Tawadros II, the spiritual leader of a community that increasingly fears for its future amid the rise of Islamists to power in the wake of the 2011 ouster of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak.
