In this Wednesday March 28, 2012 photo Bulgarian Muslim women pray during commemoration ceremony for the victims of the communist repression, 39 years ago, in Breznitsa, some 10 km from the village of Kornitsa, Bulgaria. On March 28, 1973 police and army units stormed the village of Kornitsa and opened fire on hundreds at people gathered in the square to protest the communist regime's campaign to force Bulgaria's Muslims to adopt non-Islamic names and break up their communities. The brutal crackdown left five men dead and more than 100 wounded. More than 70 families were forced to leave their homes and settle in remote villages. (AP Photo/Valentina Petrova) less
