RUSSIANS SLAUGHTER TURKISH THIRD ARMY
Give No Quarter to Men Held Responsible for the Massacre of Armenians
MONDAY, MARCH 6, 1916
LONDON, March 6.--The Russian soldiers at Bitlis, according to a Petrograd dispatch to the Morning Post, took a terrible revenge on the Turkish troops for the cruelty which the Turks were alleged to have practiced to ward the Armenians in that district. The correspondent says:
"Terrible slaughter followed the capture of the Turkish positions at Bitlis. The Russian troops had witnessed at Van, Mush, and many other places, an appalling sight, the massacre: namely, by Turkish fanatics of tens of thousands of Armenian Christian men, women, and children. It was unlikely after such deeds that any quarter should be given. This colossal killing completed the destruction of the Turkish third army.
