Antique bible turns up in Turkey

Reuters: Turkish authorities have confirmed that an ancient bible thought to be 1,500 years old is being kept safe after being seized from a gang of smugglers.

The document is in Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ, written in gold Syriac characters on leather pages loosely bound together with string.

It was part of a haul recovered 12 years ago by police targeting traffickers in ancient artefacts in southern Turkey.
