DHA photo Istanbul is set to mark the Ottoman conquest of Istanbul on its 563rd anniversary with a major event created by a grand team of 1,200, as expectations rise for the event, which is expected to attract 1 million spectators.
“A 563-men Mehter concert [an Ottoman military band], a show by the Turkish Air Force ‘Turkish Stars’ [the air force’s aerobatics team], special conquest celebration and a fireworks display will be performed for Istanbulites and the entire world through a live broadcast,” Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality said.
GRAPHIC IMAGES: Crowds forced to aid the Islamic police in stoning a young teenage boy to death
Islamic extremists have stoned a 15-year-old boy in Syria to death for the ‘crime’ of being gay.
Crowds gathered in Mayadin, a city in the eastern Deir ez-Zor province, to watch the horrific execution.
The boy, Jamal Nassir al-Oujan, was arrested by the ISIS-led Islamic police on Sunday (22 May).
After a short trial, the Sharia Court found him ‘guilty’ of sodomy and ruled he should be killed by stoning.
Three Libyan soldiers who applied for asylum after being jailed for a string of sex attacks on British women have had their ‘insulting’ applications rejected.
In a victory for common sense, the men – who were being trained here to help bring peace to their home country – have now been kicked out of the UK.
There was outrage last September when it emerged that Khaled El Azibi, 19 at the time, Ibrahim Naji El Maarfi, 21, and Mohammed Abdalsalam, 28, were seeking sanctuary despite their ‘despicable’ attacks.
