Moscow Cathedral Mosque.
Those wishing to enter the mosque stood in line since evening.
Everybody was thoroughly searched. Confiscated knives and razors lied under the feet of the policemen.
Muslims repeat ablution before every prayer.
Since there are no special rooms for this in the mosque, ablution was performed in the bushes.
Media reported that there were about 100.000 people. All the nearby streets were filled with people.
The mosque itself is not finished. Its construction has already been frozen for several years because of the lack of funding.
