BAKU, February 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Over 60,000 people took part in the Sunday march in Baku to mark the 20th anniversary of the Khojaly tragedy in Karabakh.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev led the march, which started on the Baku central square and ended near the monument to victims of the Khojaly massacre. The march participants were carrying portraits of killed civilians and placards, which demanded punishment of the culprits and international evaluation of the tragedy. Young people with similar placards were standing along the march’s way.
Aliyev laid a wreath to the Khojaly massacre monument. More than 600 residents of Khojaly were killed in the clash with Armenian armed units in the small morning hours of February 26, 1992. Azerbaijan insists on the recognition of the Khojaly tragedy as an act of genocide.
