Pope is reported alert, progressing satisfactorily

Pope John Paul II, who held a bedside conference with aides Thursday, was reported "depressed," but alert and making satisfactory progress. Meanwhile, the government's chief antiterrorist prosecutor accused right-wing Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca of the attempted murder of the Pope and of the wounding of two American women in St. Peter's Square. But he said formal charges would be filed by magistrates only after police finished their interrogation. Agca is on a hung er strike to protest the intensive police questioning.
