  1. Armenia Marks Centenary of 1915 Massacre

    Whether you call it genocide or mass murder, 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Turks 100 years ago following the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. Today, the newly anointed saints — the Armenian church just canonized them en masse — are being remembered around the globe, with world leaders converging in Yerevan, Armenia, for the commemoration. Debate continues over the use of the word “genocide,” with Turks refusing, Obama avoiding and Germans debating, but pressure is mounting for Turkey to come to terms with its founding fathers’ misdeeds.
