REPORT THAT 900 CHRISTIANS
WERE MASSACRED IN BIGHA

The New York Times
Sep 27, 1922


   LONDON, Sept. 27. - A few persons
who  escaped to the town  of  Darda-
nelles, south of Chanak, from Bigha,
assert that the  Christian   population
in  Bigha was  massacred   by  bands
of Turks, some of them  in   uniform,
who  entered the town five days ago,
says a dispatch to The London Times
from Constantinople.
   They  seized  all the Greeks and Ar-
menians, numbering  about 900, and
beheaded some and shot the remain-
der.
   It is hoped that the stories are  ex-
aggerated,  the  dispatch  adds,  but
news from Brusa and elsewhere  in
Anatolia indicates  that all the  irreg-
ulars and many of  Kemal's  regulars
are out of hand.
