Turkish Police Interrupted the Liturgy Served by an Armenian Priest at the Cathedral of Kars

A group of Armenian tourists who arrived in Kars, Turkey, were present at a liturgy at the Cathedral of Kars (also known as the Holy Apostles Church), which was served by an Armenian priest who arrived together with them, yerkir.am reports. 

Turkish media has expressed its dissatisfaction with the incident. Locals called the police, who came and interrupted the liturgy.

The Cathedral of Kars is a former Armenian Apostolic church in Kars, eastern Turkey. Built in the mid-10th century by the Armenian Bagratid King Abas I (r. 928–953), it was converted into a mosque in 1579. In the 19th and early 20th century it was converted into a Russian Orthodox and later Armenian cathedral. In 1993 it was again converted into a mosque and is called Kümbet Mosque.
