HUH? U.S. soldiers accused of destroying a minibar inside a mosque at NATO Air Base in Turkey


A minibar in a mosque? Are they serious?

Hurriyet Daily News  The Public Prosecutor’s Office has launched an official investigation into a mosque attack at the NATO İncirlik Air Base in the southern province of Adana, Turkey following claims that the attack was carried out by U.S. soldiers, Doğan News Agency has reported.

Local media in Adana had earlier reported that a number of soldiers at the İncirlik base entered the mosque on New Year’s Eve, destroying its minibar and windows along with the Quran. Turkey’s chief of staff subsequently denied the allegations. Windows in the prayer room were broken by unknown individuals and there was some additional small-scale damage, the chief of staff said in a written statement issued late Jan. 10.
