Turkey's declining Christian population
A century ago Christians made up 20% of Turkey's population, the figure is now just 0.2%.
Pope Francis is visiting the country and will meet with political and religious leaders, including the head of the Orthodox Church.
Istanbul, under its old name of Constantinople, was once a city of significance for the Christian faith, but Turkey's population now has a very large Muslim majority.
Mark Lowen reports from Istanbul.
