The monument, which sits on a hill, was erected in 1968 and is dedicated to the memory of Armenians who lost their lives at the hands of the Ottoman Turkish Government from 1915 to 1921, a period many call the Armenian genocide. “This is a service that honors their memory and blesses their souls so that they may rest in peace,” Armenian National Committee spokesman Raffi Hamparian said. Montebello is one of the many cities the pontiff will visit during his month-long tour of North America. This is his second visit to California in seven years.

The resolutions, supported by the House International Relations Committee, await action by the House of Representatives.last_img read more

The team had started its work from September 10. “We are now evaluating the degree of distress in each of these buildings. Detailed investigation is required as a good number of them have suffered significant damage. Many of them would surely require major rectification work to make them habitable. We are trying our best to first identify those buildings that do not need much repair work and rectify those so that residents can return to their homes,” Professor Som said. A total of approximately 74 buildings have suffered damages or developed cracks and the residents of all these houses have already been evacuated and shifted to various hotels by the KMRCL. More than 600 residents in the area living at Durga Pituri Lane, Syakra Para Lane and Gour Dey Lane have been evacuated for safety reasons.last_img read more
