[Pope] gunman Mehmet Ali Agca gestures during an interview at the Montacuto prison, near the Adriatic port city of Ancona, where he has spent the last eight years. Agca's motives behind the attempted assasination of [Pope John Paul II] have never been clarified despite three probes and two trials - one an investigation into whether he was hired by the Bulgarian and Soviet secret services in a communist plot. The [Pope's] revelation this month that one of the Vatican's most closely guarded secrets foretold the failed attempt on his life gives the 43-year-old Turk new ammunition. (Picture taken 19May00)
