 Pope Francis on Friday denounced the mass killing of Armenians a century ago by Ottoman forces as "genocide", risking Turkey's fury as he met Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian.

"This tragedy, this genocide, has unfortunately marked the start of a sad series of great catastrophes of the last century," the pontiff said at the presidential palace in Yerevan.
