Cypriots close ranks for rebuilding project

Joint committee for restoring fort helps divided Greek and Turkish communities remember their shared history.

    In Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus, a new project is helping rebuild trust in the divided community. It is all happening at the site which many believe was the inspirational setting for William Shakespeare's tragedy, Othello.

    A joint committee of Turkish and Greek Cypriots are restoring a fort, which will be reopened to the public in 2015.
