Thousands of people are marching in Los Angeles to commemorate the
100th anniversary of the killings of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians
under the Ottoman Empire, AP reports.

Throngs have joined Friday's six-mile walk from the Little Armenia
neighborhood to the Turkish Consulate, carrying flags and signs.

The event comes after President Barack Obama once again stopped short
of calling the 1915 killings a genocide.

Turkey denies that the deaths constituted genocide, and earlier
this month recalled its ambassador to the Vatican after Pope Francis
described the killings as genocide.
