Hundreds of Armenians gathered in San Francisco Saturday for the "Walk for Remembrance" across the Golden Gate Bridge commemorating the 95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. They were part of a worldwide rememberance of the mass killing of their fellow countrymen by Ottoman Turks.
The killing began on April 24, 1915 with the murder of 800 Armenian intellectuals. Ottoman leaders then evicted Armenians from thier homes -- an action that spiraled into the killing of an estimated 1.5 million people.
In East Jerusalem, Armenians protested outside the Turkish consulate. Turkey has long denied that the deaths were genocide and claim the death toll is exaggerated.
