Armenian Church Destroyed in Turkey

ISTANBUL (Hayots Ashkhar)–According to the Turkish Hurriet daily–the Armenian church of Chksalan–in the Beyoghlou district of Istanbul–was completely destroyed recently.

The city council nationalized the church a year and a half ago–and decided to convert it into a health center. Since the church was considered an ancient building–the government ordered the city council to restore the church. Regardless of this resolution–the city council completely demolished the Chksalan church.
