R-32 Pope still going to Muslim Turkey Nov.28 - Dec 1

Pope to visit Turkey despite row The Vatican has confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI will travel to Turkey in November, his first visit to a predominantly Muslim country...... The Pontiff will visit Ankara, Izmir, Istanbul and ancient Ephesus during the trip, which will begin on 28 November and run until 1 December,

The trip has been overshadowed by a row over remarks he made about Islam..... Muslims were angered when the Pope quoted a 14th Century Christian emperor who said the Prophet Mohammed had brought only "evil and inhuman" things.
