29 November 2012, Thursday /TODAY'S ZAMAN
A historic tunnel was unearthed on Tuesday in the Central Anatolian province of Çorum's Osmancık district during sewage work being conducted by the municipality.

The Osmancık Municipality was working on the sewage system in an area near the Koyunbaba Bridge when some of the workers found a tunnel underground. The municipality notified the Çorum Provincial Culture and Tourism Directorate, whose experts reported that the area is an archaeological site and that the tunnel is of historical value.

The municipality has temporarily suspended work to allow archaeologists to survey the site.
