2000: After serving almost 20 years of a life sentence, Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turkish gunman who tried to kill Pope John Paul II in 1981, is pardoned by Italian president Carlo Azeglio Ciampi at the pope's request. Agca was deported to Turkey, where he was imprisoned for a murder and two bank raids he committed in the 1970s. He was released from prison in January 2010, after almost 29 years behind bars in Italy and Turkey.
