Armenia: Turkish Visitors

Unzipped quotes news reports saying that 300 Turkish citizens visited the Genocide Memorial and Museum in Yerevan on the sidelines of this month's World Cup qualifying football match between Armenia and Turkey. However, as one comment says, it is unclear how many were ethnic Armenians or ethnic Turks. Nevertheless, the blog notes that the grandson of Jemal Pasha, described by Lawrence of Arabia as the Ottoman Butcher, did visit to pay his respects to those that died during what most people refer to as the 1915 Armenian Genocide.
