ISTANBUL (AP) — The European parliament has approved a resolution commemorating "the centenary of the Armenian genocide."

The non-binding resolution in Brussels was approved late Wednesday by a show of hands of a large majority.

It included an amendment that commended Pope Francis for his statement recognizing the Ottoman-era killing of Armenians as genocide.
