(RNN) - Thousands gathered at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican this week to witness the introduction of the new pope.

Cardinals from around the world elected Jorge Bergoglio as the next leader of Catholics worldwide. The 78-year-old Argentinean will be known as Pope Francis. He is the first pope from South America.

Thousands of miles away, a Caribbean cruise was cut short after the Carnival Dream suffered sporadic power failures while it was docked in St. Maarten. The company decided to fly passengers home via chartered jets.

Back in the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration gave Boeing permission to start test flights after the country's largest aircraft manufacturer said it solved the lithium battery problems that grounded all 787 Dreamliners.

Tense moments among politicians led to partisan politics after the Senate held another assault weapons ban hearing.
