Armenian Church in Kandilli Vandalized

An Istanbul-based Armenian language daily Marmara reported that windows of an Armenian church in Istanbul’s Kandili borough were shattered–the apparatus of the bell was broken–the church’s door was marred and human excrement was placed at the entrance.

Tigran Gevorkian–head of Kandili parish council said the police was informed about the incident and an investigation was launched to track down the perpetrators.

Recalling that a bomb exploded last Saturday–June 22– near the Armenian Church of Saint Gregory in another Istanbul borough the daily writes that the impression is that ‘we are going back to former days.’
