Azerbaijan holds minute of silence for 20 January martyrs

Azerbaijan has held a minute of silence to pay tribute to the 20 January martyrs. 

 

The movement of traffic and pedestrians in Azerbaijan’s cities was stopped for a minute to honor the tragedy victims. A minute of silence was followed by horns of ships in the Bay of Baku, metro cars and railway trains.  

 

The national flags are at half-mast in the buildings of diplomatic corps, government agencies, military units and ships to commemorate the Day of National Mourning.

 

On the night of January 19-20, 1990, the Soviet troops entered Baku and committed crimes against the civilian population. As a result, 132 people were killed, 612 were injured, and 814 were illegally arrested.
