SLIDESHOW: Slain journalist's death commemorated
By Sait Serkan Gurbuz Posted Feb 15 2008
The first anniversary of the murder of the Turkish Armenian journalist Hrant Dink was commemorated throughout Turkey with rallies on Jan. 19. Dink was a prominent voice in Turkey’s Armenian community and had been critical of the country’s denial of the Armenian “genocide” of the early 20th century. He was gunned down by a 17-year-old Turkish ultranationalist last year in Istanbul in front of the weekly Armenian-Turkish newspaper Agos, where he worked as editor. Nearly 100,000 people marched behind Dink’s coffin, chanting “We are all Armenian. We are all Hrant Dink” in a show of solidarity. The trial of his alleged murderers remains ongoing.
