Erdogan to give speech after Hagia Sophia ruling

ISTANBUL, July 10 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will deliver a speech later on Friday, after a court ruling which paves the way for the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul to be converted back to a mosque.

Erdogan was due to speak shortly before 9 pm (1800 GMT), his head of communications said.
