Patrice Secora: Pope John Paul the second, already the most traveled Pope in the history added thousands and thousands of miles to his journeys, visiting Great Britain, Argentina, Africa and Spain, where three men were arrested for allegedly planning to assassinate him. He put off a trip to Poland because of the unrest in that country. On January 28th anti-terrorist forces in Italy stormed in an apartment in Padua to free American Army General, James Dozier, the highest ranking US officer serving with NATO in Italy, who was held captive by leftist Red Brigade's terrorists for 42 days. Five of his captors were arrested.
