Mehmet Ali Agca, who attempted to assassinate Pope John Paul II in 1981, putting the blame afterwards on the Bulgarian secret service, has now alleged that the Vatican government has masterminded the move.
"The Vatican government decided on the Pope’s assassination," Agca told Turkey’s state-run television in his first interview in his native country since his release.
"They planned and organised it. The order to shoot the Pope was given by Vatican secretary, Cardinal Agostino Casaroli."
Agca’s accusation is just one of many he has made since he met a forgiving Pope John Paul II in 1983. Once he claimed a connection to a Palestinian group, but later blamed the Bulgarian secret service.
Mehmet Ali Agca was released from jail in Turkey at the beginning of the year and promptly proclaimed that he is "the Christ eternal".
Britain’s anti-terror chief launched an astonishing attack on airport security staff after they stopped her taking a banned amount of liquid onto a plane.
Home Office minister Baroness Neville-Jones, in charge of national security, was en route to a Washington summit when she was found to have an over-sized aerosol can in her bag.

Probably the most easiest way to install Android on an iPhone 2G/3G is via iPhoDroid, which we did cover previously. But the problem with it is; you should have a computer to run the whole process of installing Android on your iPhone 2G/3G. But thanks to Bootlace 2.1, you can now install Android 2.2.1 Froyo on your jailbroken iPhone without needing to connect it to any PC or Mac!
Okay…. counting down for the first person to update a demo unit in an Apple or AT&T store in 3, 2, 1….

”I don’t think it’s appropriate they feel discriminated against, and I’m very upset they feel that,” [principal Heather Schnagl] said.
You don’t think it’s appropriate that your students have the ability to form independent thoughts? You don’t think it’s appropriate that your students feel that way about a policy which bars them from attending an event with their peers because their partners don’t have a penis?
How dare they embarrass you for being a fucking bigot.
A New York couple have been charged with defrauding a wealthy musician to the tune of $20 million (£12.3 million) after he innocently visited their computer servicing company to have a virus removed from his laptop.
That’s the diet advice Rush Limbaugh has given his audience:
What have I told you about diet and exercise? Exercise is irrelevant…. “How do you know all this?” One of the reasons I know what I know is that I know liberals, and I know liberals lie, and if Michelle Obama’s gonna be out there ripping into “food desserts” and saying, “This is why people are fat,” I know it’s not true. “Rush, do you really believe that? It’s that simple to you, liberals lie?” Yes, it is, folks. Once you learn that, once you come to grips with that, once you accept that, the rest is easy. Very, very simple. Now, my doctor has never told me to restrict any intake of salt, but if he did, I wouldn’t. I’d just spend more time in the steam or the sauna sweating it out.
YouTube user Pallomember loves scary European death metal. But sometimes he wonders, wouldn’t scary European death metal be improved with a dash of Lady Gaga?
