    Background: SYNOPSIS: Giving evidence at the opening of his trial Father Juan Fernandez Krohn said "I bought the weapon on May 10 in Paris in order to kill Wojtila ... I first planned to kill him when I saw Sadat's killing on TV."
    Father Krohn said he wanted to kill the Pope, whom he referred to throughout by his name Karol Wojtila, because he had betrayed the Church, encouraged Communism and harmed the now outlawed Polish trade union Solidarity.
