Yerevan to mark 56th birth anniversary of Hrant Dink

1.500000+1: Armenia-Diaspora Cultural Bridge NGO has scheduled a number of events to mark the 56th birth anniversary of Hrant Dink, the slain editor-in-chief of Agos Armenian-Turkish newspaper.

On September 15, a commemorative evening and an exhibition will be held at Arno Babajanyan concert hall to host Turkish, Lebanese and Syrian guests.

Hrant Dink was assassinated in Istanbul in January 2007, by Ogun Samast, a 17-year old Turkish nationalist. This was shortly after the premiere of the genocide documentary Screamers in which he is interviewed about Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and the case against him under article 301.
