Inside the Damietta mosques

In the governorate of Damietta in the Nile Delta, the mosques of Amr Ibn Al-Aas, Al-Maini and Al-Hadidi stand ready to receive their first worshippers and visitors for many years. These edifices, which were re-opened last week by Zahi Hawass, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), and Fathi El-Baradi, the Damietta governor, have finally reached the end of restoration after being closed for almost three decades.
