By Jean Eckian

PARIS – Several hundred young Armenians from Paris and surrounding areas blocked traffic at the famous Place de l’Etoile at around 8 p.m. Friday, October 9. They waved the flags of Armenia and Artsakh, shouting “Turquie assassin!”, “Aliyev assassin!”  and asked for the recognition of Artsakh.

Security forces intervened shortly before 9 p.m. to unblock traffic, with no incidents to report.
