Al-Aqsa Goes 360 Degrees

Did you know that

A Palestinian telecommunications company on Tuesday launched a video application of 360 degrees that allows the viewer to choose the angle at which he wants to be seen from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Telecommunications Company said in a statement that the video "enables the viewer to move inside the Al-Aqsa mosque and its courtyard 360 degrees by moving his smartphone in any direction to live the experience of movement inside this place and interact with him...

The company explained that this video as a contribution to "the definition of religious places and some neighborhoods in the city of Jerusalem."

Well, now you do know.

But why could I not find this at Reuters English when I found it at Reuters Arabic?
