Vandals damage Valukli Cemetery
Istanbul16.09.2009

Unidentified vandals destroyed 99 gravestones at Valukli Cemetery in early September. The destruction was discovered on September 2 by the guards of the nearby Patriarchal Monastery of Zoodohos Pigi.

Many of the graves belonged to Greeks who lived the last years of their lives at the Valukli home for the elderly.

Similar attacks but less extensive have been reported several times in the past.
