Google Earth removes image offending Armenian Genocide victims' memory

PanARMENIAN.Net - Due to numerous protests by Armenians, Panoramio website has removed the offending image where Armenian Genocide Memorial was named as "Talaat Pasha monument", independent French journalist Jean Eckian told PanARMENIAN.Net



As Jean Eckian reported earlier, Armenian Genocide Memorial was renamed into "Talaat Pasha monument" in the Google Earth project.



This profanation was signed as Haluk Dolmayan, what is, actually, a modified name of Director of Armenian Genocide Institute-Museum, Hayk Demoyan, and is dated March 12, 2008.



The photo was added in the database of Panoramio, a partner of Google, whose photos can be seen in Google.



"The question is to know how such provocation became possible, who is author and whether it could be a member of Google Earth or Panoramio staff?" Jean Eckian said.
