Taken to heart

Rila, Bulgaria (Reuter) - Thousands of Bulgarians joined their 85-year-old former queen, Ioanna, yesterday to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of King Boris and the recent reburial of a heart believed to be his. The heart, labelled with Boris's name, was discovered in 1991 buried in a garden of a royal palace. His death remains a mystery.
