Man who shot pope must return to jail: Turkey court

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Mehmet Ali Agca, the man who shot Pope
John Paul II in 1981, must return to jail after Turkey's
Supreme Court said on Friday it had overturned a decision to
release him.

The Justice Ministry had appealed against the move to
release Agca from prison last week after he had served more
than 25 years behind bars in Italy and Turkey.
