YEREVAN (YERKIR) - The president and the attorney of the Turkish
organization called Union of Academic and Literary Authors of Anadolu
have applied to the Turkish prosecutor's office with a complaint
against author Pamuk who had said that over 1 million Armenians and
30,000 Kurds were massacred in the Ottoman Turkey, Armenpress reported,
citing an Armenian-language newspaper Haraj, published in Paris.

The move was the latest in an outrage campaign against Pamuk.
The organization has accused Pamuk of "irresponsible and ignorant
words offending the Turkish people," and demand he produced evidence
of the massacres to back his claims.
