Victims of Baku Pogroms Commemorated

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A march towards the obelisk memorializing the innocent victims of the Baku atrocities–erected at the Tsitsernakabert Memorial–took place Sunday on the ninth anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in the modern history of the Armenian people.

Wreaths were laid on the memorial on behalf of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation and the anniversary celebration steering committee.

A memorial meeting was held at the House of Journalists later that day. Those present raised issues regarding problems of refugees from Azerbaijan–which "require prompt solutions."
