Erdogan rebuffs criticism over Hagia Sophia conversion

Two men take a selfie picture in front of Hagia Sophia on July 11, 2020 in Istanbul, a day after a top Turkish court revoked the sixth-century Hagia Sophia's status as a museum, clearing the way for it to be turned back into a mosque. The World Council of Churches, which represents 350 Christian churches, said on July 11 it wrote to Turkey's President expressing "grief and dismay" over his decision to turn the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque.
