Tens of thousands of Azerbaijanis rallied in the capital Friday to mourn the anniversary of a notorious attack in the Nagorno-Karabakh war and to demand the attack be considered genocide. The rally, estimated at between 20,000 and 60,000 participants, underlined the deep tensions with neighboring Armenia even though fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnic Armenian enclave in Azerbaijan, ended in 1994.
