LOS ANGELES (AP) ~W Several thousand members of Southern California’s
Armenian community have marched through Los Angeles to remember the
deaths of 1.5 million Armenians in the former Ottoman Empire.
The annual march at midday Tuesday was to be followed by an afternoon
protest in front of the Turkish Consulate.
Armenians and most historians say the killings that began in 1915
were a genocide, but Turkey rejects that term. Turkish leaders say
that the figures are inflated and that there were deaths on both
sides as the Ottoman Empire collapsed.
