    Mourning in Azerbaijan

    Azerbaijan is on a mourning day. In the morning, despite the freezing weather, sleet and strong winds, thousands of people went to the Alley of Martyrs to commemorate the victims of January 19-20,1990.

    The ceremony was attended by President Ilham Aliyev and other senior officials and diplomats, who traditionally expressed their condolences to the head of state.

    Alley of Martyrs will be also visited by members of the opposition‘s Public Chamber. The mosques of the country hold the ceremony of commemoration of the victims of Black January.

    On the TV channels there is no entertainment on this day. In the Baku Metro funeral melodies are sounded, and the stations and escalators are decorated with red carnations.
