Hundreds of people gathered on Saturday to commemorate the events that took place 40 years ago in the village. On March 28, 1973 armed forces of the communist police services and the army attempted to storm Kornitsa, a village predominantly occupied by Pomaks - an ethnic minority group of Bulgarian Muslims. The state campaign was part of a forceful assimilation policy, including a ban on headscarves and the change of Turkish-Arabic names to ethnic Bulgarian ones. The operation met with organised resistance from the locals, resulting in the death of six people and dozens others being wounded, jailed and beaten.

A sticker of the "969 movement" is seen at a shop in Minhla
A sticker of the "969 movement" is seen at a shop in Minhla March 29, 2013. Since 42 people were killed in violence that erupted in Meikhtila town on March 20, unrest led by hardline Buddhists has spread to at least 10 other towns and villages in central Myanmar, with the latest incidents only a two-hour drive from Yangon. Minhla endured about three hours of violence on both Wednesday and Thursday. About 500 of Minhla township's 100,000 people are Muslims, said a police officer, who estimated two-thirds of those Muslims had fled. The number '969' is derived from Buddhism - which refers to various attributes of the Buddha, his teachings and the monkhood - but it has come to represent a radical form of anti-Islamic nationalism which urges Buddhists to boycott Muslim-run shops and services.

A homeless man (front) sleeps inside a telephone box as Brazilian Catholics walk past during a procession to mark the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday during Holy Week at downtown Sao Paulo March 29, 2013. Pope Francis on Thursday urged Catholic priests to devote themselves to helping the poor and suffering. Francis' homily at his first Holy Thursday service as Roman Catholic leader was the latest sign since his surprise election two weeks ago of his determination that the 1.2 billion-member Church should be closer to the poor.

Cyprus has "contained" the risk of bankruptcy in the wake of a tough rescue package with the European Union and has no intention of leaving Europe's single currency, the island's president said on Friday. Conservative leader Nicos Anastasiades assured Cypriots and wealthy foreign depositors that restrictions on bank transactions, imposed this week, would gradually be lifted, but gave no time frame.
