Someone objects to the church being used as a church. Like Hagia Sophia it has been turned into “a museum for Orthodox icons.”
A bomb exploded before dawn yesterday at a Greek Orthodox church in Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus, causing damage but no injuries.
Officials said anti-Greek slogans were scribbled on the church. The attack followed reports in the Turkish-Cypriot press that local extremist groups had vowed to try to prevent services planned next week at the Aghios Mamas Church to celebrate its namesake’s saint’s day.
