A memorial took place at Dag Hammorskjold Park near UN HQ in New York on Friday to remember the victims of the Khojaly Massacre.
Many Azeri and Turkish people attended a protest held by Azeri New York Community to commemorate victims of the Khojaly Massacre. They chanted slogans saying that "We Want Justice for Khojaly", "Long Live Azerbaijan" and "Long Live Turkic World".
