Pope Benedict on Thursday named Bertone to be the Vatican's next secretary of state, the number two job in the Holy See, whose holder is often dubbed the 'deputy pope.' Bertone, the 71-year-old archbishop of northwestern Genoa,will succeed Cardinal Angelo Sodano, 78, who is retiring after 15 years in the post. REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi (VATICAN)
