An incident between Muslim tourists and guards employed by Cordoba mosque broke out when the visitors started to pray in the building, which is a former mosque that was converted into a Christian cathedral.
Demetrio Fernández, the bishop of the cathedral, recently insisted on the ban of Muslim prayers in the Christian cathedral. But members of a group of more than a 100 Muslims from Austria had started praying when security guards ordered them to stop. Upon their refusal to oblige by the security guards’ invitation to halt prayers, police were called in to remedy the situation.
Two visitors were arrested as a result of the incident.
