Cypriots unite to restore Othello's tower

Greek and Turkish residents of Cyprus try to rebuild trust as they start renovation on heritage site.

    A renovation project in Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus is helping rebuild trust on the divided island.

    Greek and Turkish Cypriots have collaborated to restore the ruins of Othello tower, which many believe was the setting of the Shakespeare play with the same name.

    They expect to finish the project in 2015.

    Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor-Wood reports from Famagusta, in the Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus.
