Critic of Armenian Genocide Assasinated

The Times

A prominent newspaper editor who was convicted for questioning Turkey’s official denial of genocide against its Armenian community was shot dead in central Istanbul yesterday.

Witnesses saw a young man fire three shots at Hrant Dink, 53, a Turkish Armenian, outside the offices of the bilingual Agos, which he edited. Only a week ago he had written about death threats to his family.
