MASSACRES AND DEPORTATIONS
Aug 31, 1921.
LONDON, August 29.
The Constantinople correspondent of
"the Times" says disquieting news
comes from the interior of Anatolia.
There is no doubt that the Nationalist
authorities have revived the policy of
the Committee of Union and Progress
of massacring or deporting Greeks and
Many Greeks from the Black Sea
littoral have been killed, and one con-
voy of deportees which started 900
strong, has reached Sivas with only
200 left. Some 5000 Turkish Arme-
nians, including women and children,
have been deported. Many were mas-
sacred or died on the march.
The Nationalists care little for Eur-
opean or American opinion, but they
profess to respect the opinion of Mos-
lems in India. The correspondent
writes: "Is it too much to ask the
responsible leaders of Indian Moslems
to use their influence at Angora to
prevent a repetion of the horrors of
1915 and 1916. No prominent In-
dian's voice has yet denounced the
Turkish tyranny over Christians."
