After a few weeks break, we are back to Anderson reporting from Istanbul, Turkey on November 27, 2006. If you missed our post of the 8pm ET hour of AC360, please click here. Today we pick up at the beginning of the 10pm ET hour.
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN CORRESPONDENT: John, thanks very much. Technology is an amazing thing. We will have more of Pope Benedict's historic visit to Turkey ahead, and what it could mean for a country poised on the brink of two different destinies.
COOPER: Dawn breaking here in Turkey. You are looking across the Bosphorus Straits at a mosque on the Asian side of Istanbul. This is a city literally divided between East and West. One side of the Bosphorus is Asia. This side that I'm on is in Europe. Istanbul, really like the rest of Turkey, struggles with this dual identity. Turkey is an overwhelmingly Muslim country -- 99 percent. It is pro-Western and officially secular, separating between religion and politics. Yet, a lot of Turks identify themselves by their religion first. One of the many examples of how Turkey tries to strike a balance between two worlds.
And tragedy of tragedies, Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock have each filed for divorce from each other after less than four months of marriage. Both cited irreconcilable differences on the divorce papers filed in Los Angeles. The couple was married in several wedding ceremonies over the summer, including one in St. Tropez, France. No early word on which marriage ceremony they are filing for divorce from, Anderson, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that maybe she's about to go back to Tommy Lee. What do you think?
COOPER: Wow. Gosh, I don't know enough about it. But I thought those two crazy kids were going to make it. Well, John, thanks very much.
Thanks for watching. See you tomorrow, from Turkey.
