Stones Thrown at Armenian Journalists in Bursa
Azerbaijani youth, mainly 18 to 20 years old, initiated an attack on the bus carrying Armenian journalists before the Armenia-Turkey football match in Bursa, said author and host of Urvagits (Outline) program on Armenian Kentron (“Center”) TV station Petros Ghazaryan to journalists today. Ghazaryan has just returned from Turkey.
According to the television host, that group differentiated from the overall background by their aggressive disposition. Some of the Armenian journalists went part of the way to the stadium on foot; the others, by bus. The ones who walked there remained unnoticed in the crowd. According to Ghazaryan, the fact that Armenian journalists brought by bus were singled out this way, instigated those gathered even more. “The Turkish side made a mistake in that matter,” Ghazaryan said.
Another member of the press who participed in the events in Turkey, Turkologist and Armenian paper Azg analyst Hakob Chakryan, didn’t completely share his colleague’s opinion. According to Chakryan, those among the provokers could be not only Azerbaijani people, but also Turkish people, who differed by their fanaticism. He stated, in this context, it’s easy to “tune” into the necessary station.
