Khojalu Events.

In 1992 there was a tragedy in NKR. While the peaceful population was evacuating from Khojalu to Aghdam, the National Front of Azerbaijan fighters directed them towards Aghdam where they executed them. The political motive was to overthrow the then president of Azerbaijan Mutalibov by blaming it on the Armenian side (who, incidentally, did not control the territory the Khojalu civilians were killed).

Pigh has created a new blog which documents the events based on the reports in mainly Azerbaijani media. Justice for Khojaly can be accessed here.

Interesting post..

You might want to checkout an article I just typed up this past weekend about a related Khojaly panel discussion held by the Azerbaijani-American Council and Azerbaijani Parliamentarians at the University of California, Berkeley last week. Be sure to checkout the comments left at the bottom of the article as well:‘tragedy-of-khojaly’/

"Azerbaijani Parliamentarians Visit UC Berkeley & Discuss the ‘Tragedy of Khojaly’

On February 20, 2009 the Turkic Student Association at the University of California, Berkeley invited Azerbaijani Parliamentarians, the ‘AzeriTAj’ News Agency, and representatives from both the Azerbaijani-American Council and the ‘Center for Strategic Studies under the President of Azerbaijan’ to present a one-sided panel discussion portraying the Azerbaijani-perspective of the events that took place on the night of February 25-26, 1992 in the then Azerbaijani city of Khojaly.

The panel discussion was titled ‘Justice for Khojaly’ and the main two themes in which all the presenters discussed revolved around, in their perspective, the crime of massacre which they accuse was committed by Armenian Armed Forces against the civilian population of Khojaly and steps in which they believe must be taken to bring those responsible to trial and justice within the context of an international tribunal."
