Turkey revives Armenian church

Armenians, who once faced persecution, invited to attend service at ancient church.


    Turkey has repaired an ancient Armenian Christian church in the country's east and invited Armenians from all over the world to come for a one-day Christian service.

    The event in Akdamar Church is the first since 1915, when most Turkish Armenians were killed or driven out of the country.
