Armenian Patriarch of Constantinople Injured in Automobile  Accident

According to news received  today in the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, His Beatitude Archbishop Mesrob  Mutafian, Armenian Patriarch of Constantinople, was injured in an automobile  accident.  His Beatitude and his  delegation were traveling on a pilgrimage to Antalia.  As a result of the accident, Abp.  Mesrob’s leg and nose were broken, and suffered numerous other minor  injuries.  He was immediately  transported to a hospital.

On February 2, His Holiness  Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, spoke by  telephone with the Vicar of the Patriarchate, His Eminence Archbishop Shahan  Svajian, and learned of the details surrounding the incident and the condition  of the health of the Patriarch.  His  Holiness requested that Abp. Shahan convey his wishes for a quick and complete  recovery to His Beatitude.

The cause of the accident was  attributed to a failure of the automobile’s brakes.  Also slightly injured in the accident  were Rev. Fr. Sahak Mashalian of the Patriarchate, and ten others who were  accompanying the Patriarch.  The  Patriarchate is headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey.
