    A man reads a copy of the Koran inside his shop in Damascus early April 12, 2012. Syria's Defence Ministry said on Wednesday it would halt operations on Thursday morning, but made no mention of an army pullback from cities and said it would confront "any assault" by armed groups. Attacks on opposition neighbourhoods over the last week have fuelled doubts it would comply with the truce. REUTERS/Khaled al-Hariri (SYRIA - Tags: CIVIL UNREST SOCIETY)

The story of Mount Paektu is the story of how one man managed to build an entire national culture and history around his own carefully crafted story, deliberately drawing on the methods and symbols of religion.

    Members of parliament from the ruling AK Party and Republican People's Party scuffle during a debate at the parliament in Ankara

    Posted: 3/30/2012 2:30:34 AM EST
    Members of parliament from the ruling AK Party (AKP) and Republican People's Party (CHP) scuffle during a debate at the parliament in Ankara early March 30, 2012. The Turkish parliament is hotly debating a bill overturning a 1997 law, imposed with the backing of the military, which extended compulsory education to eight from five years and stopped under-15s attending religious "imam hatip" schools. Parliamentarians on Thursday accepted a proposal from Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's AK Party to offer optional courses on the Koran and the Prophet Mohammad's life for middle and upper school pupils - from about 10 to 18 years old. The assembly was expected to approve the bill in the coming days and the AK Party is able to call on a large parliamentary majority to push the law through.
