France outlaws Armenian Genocide denial
Armenian Genocide   Apr 11, 2012   RT  

The French Senate approved a bill making it a crime to deny that the massacre of Armenians by the Ottoman empire in 1915, was genocide. The proposal is set to make the denial of genocide and war crimes, recognized by French law, punishable by up to a year in prison. Turkey denies the massacre.
