Cairo, February 22, AZERTAC

Students of the Cairo University staged the rally dedicated to the 23rd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide.

Egyptian students gathered in the Al Azhar Park to commemorate the victims of the terrible genocide committed against Azerbaijani innocent people in Khojaly city by the units of the Armenian armed forces on the night of February 25-26, 1992. They held candles and banners reading “Justice for Khojaly!” to demonstrate solidarity with Azerbaijani people.

Student Mustafa Hamdi said the rally staged by students was not first. According to him, last year they organized a bicycle marathon “Together against terrorism” to condemn the military aggression, committed in Azerbaijan`s Khojaly city, in the result of which 613 innocent people, including women, children and elders were killed.

The Egyptian media has published articles on the rally.
