ARMENIANS ATTACK 2 TURKISH DIVISIONS



Serious Uprising Follows Massacre of 2,000 by Kurds or Turks

MAY 17, 1915

LONDON, Monday, May 17.-- A dispatch to THE TIMES from Cairo says it is reported that the Armenians in Zeitun and Cicilia (within Asiatic Turkey) have risen, and that the energies of two Turkish reserve divisions are required to meet the situation.

Armenian newspapers, the corespondent adds, give harrowing details of a massacre of 2,000 Armenians by Kurds of Turks in Transcausia.
