ON GALLIPOLI
TURKS PERSECUTE GREEKS
Thousands Imprisoned

The Turkish persecution of Greeks is spreading.
Over 30,000 Greeks have been compelled to abandon
their belongings and have been dispersed among Mussulman
villagers in the interior of Turkey. Thousands have been
imprisoned upon various pretexts, some being accused of
having revictualled the Allies' submarines.
