campaigned for the rights of ethnic Armenians, both as a prominent spokesman for his ethnic community in Turkey and as the founder (1996) and editor of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian newspaper Agos. After writing in 2005 about the 1915–16 massacre of hundreds of thousands of Armenians (which Turkish authorities denied took place), Dink was arrested for “insulting Turkishness” and given a six-month suspended sentence. He was shot dead outside the Agos offices.
