A historic monument of the medieval period, the Church of St. George, in the walled area of occupied Famagusta in Cyprus, is used as a receptor of uncleanness, according to a report in the Turkish Cypriot newspaper Havantis.
The newspaper writes that there are many historical monuments in the walled city that are crumbling from disrepair, and so do not attract visitors.
Apart from wild grasses in the courtyards of many churches, during the night, some people consume alcohol within the church, leaving their garbage and cause environmental pollution.
The Havantis writes that neglected are also the churches of St. Simeon, Holy Zoni and St. Nicholas.
