AMERICAN ARMENIAN STUDENT REACHED THE TOP OF MOUNT ARARAT


YEREVAN, OCTOBER 5, ARMENPRESS: On Sept 11, the day of St. Cross,
American Armenian student Cameron Johnson Rebejian climbed the top of
Mount Ararat, together with one Kurd and two Czechs,
Self-Determination Union leader Paruyr Hayrikian told reporters.

Cameron Johnson Rebejian devoted his pilgrimage to the 175-th
anniversary of the date when Khachatur Abovian hiked the mount and to
the victims of Sept 11 terrorist act in New York.

According to initial arrangements, the American Armenian should
have mounted Ararat together with Paruyr Hayrikian. However, because
Hayrikian is a rejected person in Turkey and did not want to change
his name, the plan fizzled out.
