An ancient Egyptian obelisk has become a makeshift memorial for the 10 German tourists killed in this week's suicide bombing in Istanbul, with people laying carnations, messages and even football scarves to remember the victims.On Thursday, dozens of ordinary people came to the monument.The obelisk was commissioned in the mid-2nd millennium BC by the Egyptian pharaoh but was shipped to what is now Istanbul in the late fourth century AD where it was placed in the center of the city by Roman Emperor Theodosius I.
