Hunters of hidden “Armenian treasures” desecrated the old Armenian cemetery in Beg Bag district of Turkish province of Erzincan.
Victims of 1939 earthquake are buried in this area. There is an Armenian Church and an Armenian cemetery nearby, Turkish Milliyet daily reports.
This time the hunters dug the grave at the depth of 15 meters. 65 year-old Aksun, who arrived from Istanbul to visit his relatives’ graves, discovered a desecrated cemetery and dumped skeletons around the graves.
“We left Erzincan in 1967. My mother and my elder brother are buried here. I am shocked by this scene. There is no respect even for the late,” Aksun said.
