ANKARA (AFP) – Turkey on Saturday rejected the UN cultural agency’s criticism of the conversion of a revered Istanbul cathedral-turned-museum into a mosque as “biased and political,” Agence France-Presse reported.
Last year, Turkey turned the Byzantine-era Hagia Sophia cathedral into a mosque for the first time since 1934. Shortly after that, it ordered another ancient Orthodox church, The Holy Saviour in Chora, into a mosque.
