Berlin - Arab Today

German lawmakers passed a resolution Thursday recognising the World War I massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces as genocide, defying Turkey's warnings that the vote could hurt ties.

Only one MP voted against and another abstained, as parliament approved overwhelmingly by a show of hands the resolution entitled "Remembrance and commemoration of the genocide of Armenians and other Christian minorities in 1915 and 1916".
