The Turkish authorities have transferred to France the body of an Armenian militant 33 years after he was hanged for carrying out a deadly assault on Ankara's international airport, a report said Thursday.Ekmekjian, a Lebanese Armenian, was executed on January 28, 1983 at Ankara's Ulucanlar prison after being found guilty of carrying out the attack.Ekmekjian was affiliated with the underground so-called Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA), which carried out a string of deadly attacks in the 1970s and 1980s purportedly aimed at avenging the mass killing of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire from 1915 in World War I.Armenia accuses Ottoman forces of carrying out a genocide of Armenians but Ankara has always angrily rejected this term.
