The United Nations has become involved in a dispute between Greece and Turkey - but the fight is not over territory.

Instead, the two countries are locked in a cultural war over the origins of a popular form of puppetry.

The UN's recent decision to recognise Turkey's puppet tradition - known as Karagiozis - triggered the clash. Now Greece is headed to the UN to assert its own distinctive puppet culture.
