Authorities in Turkish province restoring Armenian cemetery

December 18, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Authorities in Turkey’s province of Malatya have carried out reconstruction work at an Armenian cemetery where two buildings were demolished earlier this year angering the local Armenians.

A guardhouse and a chapel are being rebuilt and will soon be handed to the Armenian community of Malatya, reported Turkish media, quoting official sources. The buildings had been ruined when workers targeted the wrong structures while doing work on the site.

Once the restored buildings are provided with electricity, water and natural gas and the area is improved, they will be provided to the HAYDER organization, which represents the Armenian community of Malatya, the reports say.
