Cairo - MENA
Azerbaijan's ambassador in Cairo said on Saturday that his country will mark the anniversary of the "Khojaly massacre" on February 26.
The diplomat told MENA that a number of Cairo University students organized on Friday a candlelight vigil at Al Azhar Park to commemorate the massacre and to show solidarity with the Azeri people.
The Khojaly massacre, also known as the Khojaly tragedy, was the killing of at least 161 ethnic Azerbaijani civilians from the town of Khojaly on February 25–26, 1992 by the Armenian and, partially, by CIS armed forces during the Nagorno-Karabakh War.
