HC Deb 16 August 1895 vol 36 cc170-1

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government have information confirming the reports in the Press that two Mussulman villages have been burned by bands of Bulgarian marauders, and their inhabitants massacred; and, if so, whether Her Majesty's Government will remonstrate with the Bulgarian Government upon these atrocities?


Information has been received from Turkish sources that a village across the frontier has been attacked and burned, with some loss of life, by a band of Bulgarian marauders. Representations have been constantly addressed to the Bulgarian Government, and have been repeated in consequence of this incident, urging them to prevent the passage of similar bands, and to preserve order upon the Turkish frontier.
