Lapithos mosque draws ire of residents


A fourth mosque is being built in the village of Lapithos in the north, the newspaper Afrika reported on Tuesday, drawing the criticism of residents in the area.

According to a letter the residents sent to the newspaper, the ‘municipality’ has remained quiet on the matter and the construction of the mosque has caused a lot of noise and dust in the area.

The residents also pointed a finger at the ‘municipality’ saying that yet another mosque is being built instead of a school.

The mosque, the newspaper reported, is being built on a large plot of land in a residential area, and the funds for its construction were donated by the Turkish ‘embassy’ in the north.
