Putin praises anti-extremism efforts as Moscow mosque reopens
Moscow's biggest mosque has reopened, with President Putin as well as the Turkish and Palestinian leaders in attendance.
The Jum'ah mosque was demolished four years ago and has been rebuilt to accommodate 10,000 worshippers.
It is one of three large mosques in Russia, along with those in the republics of Chechnya and Dagestan.
