People holding photographs of (L-R) Armenian writer Krikor Zohrab, Armenian poet Ruben Sevak, Armenian poet Daniel Varoujan, Armenian priest and composer Komitas and Armenian writer Siamanto, who were among the Armenian intellectuals arrested by Ottoman forces in 1915, attend a flower laying ceremony at the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial, on April 24, 2015 in Yerevan, as part of the Armenian genocide centenary commemoration. Armenians on April 24 marked the centenary of the massacre of up to 1.5 million of their kin by Ottoman forces as France called on Turkey to recognise the 1915 slaughter as genocide.
