  Shooting kills priest in Turkey 


  An Italian Catholic priest has been shot dead outside his church in 
north-east Turkey. 
  Police in the Black Sea port of Trabzon said they were searching for a 
teenage boy seen fleeing from the scene of the attack on Sunday.   It was 
unclear if the shooting was connected to widespread Muslim outrage over 
cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.   Turkish broadcaster NTV identified the 
priest as Andrea Santore and said he died from a single shot to the chest.   
Turkey has seen regular protests in recent days over the Danish caricatures of 
Muhammad.   Leaders of the overwhelmingly Muslim country have condemned the 
pictures, but have also called for calm.   The Istanbul-based Ecumenical 
Patriarch Bartholomew, who is the spiritual head of the world's Orthodox 
Christians, and other non-Muslim clerics in Turkey have also criticised the 
images.   Several Italian newspapers have reprinted the pictures, saying they 
are defending freedom of expression.
