(FILES) This picture taken on July 3, 2007 shows people walking in front of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Turkey and Greece were locked on November 20, 2013 in a war of words over the possible conversion of Hagia Sophia, one of Istanbul's most stunning landmarks, into a mosque. The feud over the 1,476-year-old World Heritage site is the latest to erupt between the two neighbours over religion. Greece reacted furiously to remarks by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc that he hoped to change the status of Hagia Sophia, which is now a museum.
