Question 2

WHAT CITY in Turkey was known as Iluh until 1957? Named for the river on which it's built and the capital of its namesake province, it's both a center of the oil industry and the site of a major hydroelectric dam, both of which have contributed to the growth of its mostly-Kurdish population from 3,000 to 350,000 over the past 70 years.
