Armenians commemorate WWI-era massacres the US is set to designate as genocide

A man lays flowers at the ceremony of the 106th anniversary of World War I-era mass killings at the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial in Yerevan on April 24, 2021. Armenians mark the 106th anniversary of the massacres of hundreds of thousands of Armenians during World War I as the Ottoman Empire collapsed. Armenians have long sought to have the killings internationally recognised as genocide, with the support of many other countries, but this has been fiercely rejected by Turkey. / AFP / Karen MINASY
