Egypt’s Islamic body reverses Ottomans ‘occupied’ Istanbul remark

Tensions between Egypt and Turkey are showing no sign of abating as Cairo’s religious authority, Dar al-Ifta, referred to the Ottoman seizure of the city of Constantinople in 1453 as an “occupation”.

The statement was issued on Sunday by Dar al-Ifta on its Facebook page in an attack on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who it accused of using religion to further his “colonial ambitions” abroad.
