Lebanon's Armenian community gathered at the Armenian Catholicosate in Antelias Tuesday morning to mark the 103th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, believed to have led to the death of over 1.5 million people.Although the date is not set as an official holiday, the municipality of the predominantly Armenian Burj Hammoud asked all shops and institutions in the area to close on the day, "in solidarity with the memory of the Armenian Genocide". As Keshishian said his closing words, a marching band played in front of a crowd of religious figures, civilians, and politicians – including candidates from opposing political parties that are going head-to-head for Parliament's Armenian seats in the May 6 elections.
