Turkey PM says could deport up to 100,000 Armenians
Turkey's prime minister has threatened to expel thousands of illegal Armenian immigrants after US and Swedish lawmakers passed votes branding World War One-era killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide.

 

Turkey, a NATO member and candidate to join the European Union, recalled its ambassadors to Washington and Stockholm after the non-binding votes and warned they could hurt a fragile effort to reconcile with Armenia after a century of hostility. (Reuters)
