Turkish fury at French vote on Armenian genocide law

Turkey has reacted with fury to the latest move by French lawmakers to condemn the mass killing of Armenians by Turks in 1915.

The Turkish Justice Minister has described the vote as unjust and lacking any respect for his country. The Armenian Foreign Minister said the French vote would go down in history for protecting human rights.
