Tens of Thousands March in Armenia to Remember Genocide

YEREVAN—Tens of thousands of people in Yerevan have taken part in a torch-light procession led by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation to commemorate the 95th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

The demonstrators burned a banner with images of Turkish leaders. They carried placards with slogans such as “We demand compensation from Turkey!” and “The recognition time is now!”

Armenians across the world will mark the 95th anniversary of the Genocide on Saturday.
