Huge Rally Commemorates 'Armenian Genocide'

(Times Square-WABC, April 23, 2005) - A huge rally in Manhattan today
commemorated the 90th anniversary of the slaughter of over a million
Armenians.

Thousands of Armenians from all over the world converged in Times
Square to remember what has come to be known as the "Armenian
genocide."

Between 1915 and 1921 an estimated 80 percent of the population of
Armenia was killed, reportedly on orders from the Ottoman Turkish
leader, Talaat Pasha.

Speakers today called on Turkey, the U.S. and the U.N to recognize
the exterminations as an act of genocide.
