Oct 11 2007

The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee approved a
resolution calling the 1915 massacres of Armenians by Ottoman Turks
genocide on a 27-21 vote, Reuters reported Oct. 10. It will now
go to the House floor, where Democratic leaders promise a vote by
mid-November. The Senate has a companion bill, but both measures are
symbolic and do not require the president’s signature. U.S. President
George W. Bush has spoken against the measures.
