An Italian parliamentary commission concluded "beyond any reasonable
doubt" that the Soviet Union was behind the 1981 attempt to kill Pope
John Paul II _ a theory long alleged but never proved, according to a draft
report made available Thursday.
"This commission believes, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the leaders
of the Soviet Union took the initiative to eliminate the pope Karol Wojtyla,"
said a draft of the commission's report obtained by The Associated Press.
The report also said a photograph shows that a Bulgarian man acquitted of
involvement in the May 13, 1981, assassination attempt was in St. Peter's
Square when the pontiff was shot by Mehmet Ali Agca.
