Turks ‘Disposed of’ 80,000 in Armenian Camp-Kurds Burned 2,000 Women and Sifted Ashes for Jewels.

In giving details of the Armenian massacre in Turkey in the last five years, the Constantinople correspondent of the Petit PArisien says that at one time 100,000 Armenians were concentrated for alleged startegical reasons at Dorger, Arabia. The Turkish authorities in Constantinople thought the number was too high and gave orders that 80,000 of the Armenians be put out of the way. In the Mush Valley, the correspondent adds, the Kurds robber 2,000 Armenian women. Later, suspecting that the women had swallowed their jewels, the Kurds killed them in a horrible manner and burned the bodies. The next day, the correspondent continues, ‘these monsters quietly sifted the ashes seeking the pewels.’ The correspondent reports that in the same region seven thousand children between three and ten years of age died of starvation and one hundred women were buried alive in trenches which the Turks first forced them to dig.
