Plates in the domes of the 432-year historical Kılıç Ali Pasha Mosque in Istanbul's Beyoğlu district, designed by the famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan, have been stolen by thieves.
Taking advantage of the lockdown in the late hours of April 27, the suspects removed the plates on the domes and fled from the scene by loading the plates onto a car they brought with them.
