800-year-old Hebrew book seized in Turkey
An 800-year-old book written in Hebrew was seized in southeastern Turkey, local officials said on Thursday.
The Turkish gendarme’s anti-smuggling teams caught four people red-handed trying to sell the medieval tome, said the Diyarbakir Governorship in a statement.
Adorned with religious illustrations, the book consists of some 22 pages of leather, the statement added.
The medieval book was put under state protection, it said.
