Macedonia: Giant New Cross Angers Skopje's Muslims
by Sinisa Jakov Marusic
A decision to allow the construction of a 33-metre-tall Christian cross in the Macedonian capital has attracted negative reactions from the Albanian Muslim minority.
The plan to build the tall cross in the Aerodrom municipality of the Macedonian capital which, according to the project's initiator, will be visible in the Albanian, predominantly Muslim parts of Skopje, was criticised by locals.
"There are enough churches and mosques. There is no need for such monuments," Adem Ahmet, an elderly ethnic Albanian resident of Skopje's Albanian-dominated Cair municipality told BIRN.
