Armenians worship at church in Turkey

Armenians have taken part in a Mass at an ancient church on an island in Turkey for the first time in almost a century.

The church was ransacked during the mass killings of Armenians in World War I and no service has been held there since then.

Turkey's decision to allow a one-off Mass is being seen as a gesture towards reconciliation with Armenians.
