Muslims and Christians not ready to share. By Gwynne Dyer

It was the world's second-biggest mosque until the Spanish reconquest of the city in the 13th century, and a group of 120 Muslim tourists from Austria was visiting it.

Suddenly, half a dozen of them began to pray - and the security guards intervened and told them to stop.
