2 Turkish diplomants shot by Armenian gunmen

Armenians fighting an underground war against the Turkish government wounded two Turkish diplomats in Tehran Wednesday, but two other embassy staffers escaped unscathed, embassy officials said.

Turkish officials, commenting on the failed attempts, said one guerrilla was killed as he tried to plant a bomb in another diplomat's car. Four other Armenians were captured by police outside the home of a fourth member of the embassy staff.

The Armenians are demanding a homeland in eastern Turkey and Turkish acknowledgment of guilt for the 1915 massacre of some 1.5 million Armenians.
