Jordan turns it's attention to nuclear power to overcome its dependency on oil imports.

The Kingdom of Jordan is one of the region's main oil importers, with crude oil accounting for 16 percent of the country's total imports.

Now the Kingdom is looking to remove its reliance on energy imports and become an energy exporter by going nuclear. MME takes a look at Jordan's nuclear ambitions.

FACETIME: Turkey's Mosque Designer

Zeynep Fadilioglu has established a reputation as a designer of nightclubs, bars, hotels and apartments for jet-set clients around the world. But now she is putting her contemporary spin on Istanbul's newest Mosque.
