Ukraine's acting president Oleksandr Turchynov late Tuesday ordered a new "anti-terrorist" operation against separatists holding a string of eastern towns after the discovery of two "brutally tortured" bodies.

FILE - In this April 15, 1963 file photo, Pope John XXIII sits at his working desk in his studio in a IX century tower in the Vatican gardens. In background the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. The Pontiff found the tower - once a fortress and later the Vatican observatory - abandoned and in decay. He liked it, particularly for the beautiful view from its covered terrace, embracing a great part of Rome and the surrounding country, in clear weather as far as the sea, distant about 25 kilometers (16 miles). He had it repaired and spends many days working in the studio he has had arranged there. While much of the focus of Sunday's dual canonization will be on Pope John Paul II's globe-trotting, 26-year papacy and his near-record sprint to sainthood, many older Catholics will be celebrating the short but historic pontificate of the "Good Pope," John XXIII.
