Conclave date unlikely to be announced Thursday (see related stories) (ANSA) - Vatican City, March 7 - Cardinals are unlikely to set a date for the conclave to elect the next pope on Thursday, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said.

"It does not seem probable to me," Lombardi told a press conference when asked about whether a decision was coming Thursday.

"It would be more no than yes for me but, as you know, it doesn't depend on me".
