ISTANBUL—Anti-Armenian demonstrators on Sunday carried a banner praising Hrant Dink’s murderer Ogum Samsat as they marched to highlight the events in Khojaly, which the Azeri propaganda machine uses to incite hatred toward Armenians, the Agos newspaper reported.
“Hooray for Ogun Samast! Down with Hrant Dink! Salute Azerbaijan and keep on fighting,” read the banner.
The group reportedly identified themselves as “soldiers of Alparslan Turkes,” who was a nationalist politician and founder of Nationalist Movement Party (MHP). They began to march from Sisli to Taksim square, but were blocked by police.
The group dispersed after making a press statement, saying people in Turkey were ignorant about the events in Khojaly.
