String of attacks against Armenian Christians in Istanbul
Catholic World News - January 30, 2013
Five Armenian Christians have been attacked recently in an Istanbul neighborhood. One 85-year-old murder victim was stabbed repeatedly and had a cross carved on her corpse.
“Opinion remains divided as to whether these are organized hate crimes targeting non-Muslims or just random theft,” The Economist reports. “Istanbul’s governor, Huseyin Avni Mutlu, insists that it was the latter.”
