BOSNIA OPENS LIBRARY TO HOUSE ANCIENT MANUSCRIPTS

“During Bosnia’s war and the siege of Sarajevo, residents moved a collection of ancient books and manuscripts to eight different locations to save them from destruction. On Wednesday, thanks to a $9 million donation from Qatar, Bosnia’s president and a Qatar minister opened a new library in the heart of the Ottoman-era Old Town section of Sarajevo to house those books and more than 100,000 manuscripts. The oldest is a handwritten Islamic encyclopedia that was written in Arabic in 1105.” (via The Associated Press)
