Turkey and Sweden in Armenian 'genocide' row


Turkey has recalled its ambassador to Sweden after Stockholm voted to describe the killing of Armenians in World War I as genocide.

The Turkish Prime Minister has also cancelled a planned visit because of the resolution, which passed by just one vote in the Swedish parliament.

It comes days after a US congressional panel passed a similar resolution.

Fiona Werge reports.
