Mayor in Turkey bans turkey


SINCAN - Islamist local government officials in this central Turkish town have banned the sale of turkey and will put up signs calling for a boycott of new year celebrations, a Turkish newspaper said on yesterday.

"Do not celebrate the new year. New Year's Day is not our day. We are not Christians. Let's not be like them," the signs will read, together with verses from the Koran, the newspaper Radikal said.
