A new mosque that is one of the largest in Germany was officially opened in Berlin's Kreuzberg quarter, which has a strong Turkish presence.
The mosque, which can hold around 1, 000 people, is part of a complex that media reports said cost around 10 million euros (12.5 million dollars) to build and was entirely financed by private Lebanese and Palestinian donors.
The mosque is topped by a glass dome and four small minarets, and is part of a six-storey, 5,000-square-metre building that includes commercial and social centres and a library.
