About 1,000 of Khojaly`s 10,000 people were massacred by the Armenian Army in Tuesdays attack. Azerbaijani television showed truckloads of corpses being evacuated from the Khocaly area.

"This regiment (ex-Soviet 366 military regiment responsible for Khojaly massacre – JFK Campign note), though not involved in military operations, was a stabilizing factor"
L. Ter-Petrosyan, Former President of Armenia (quoted from NYT 3.03.1992)
The New York Times, 3 March 1992 MASSACRE BY ARMENIANS BEING REPORTED



"Before Khojali, the Azerbaijanis thought that they were joking with us, they thought that the Armenians were people who could not raise their hand against the civilian population. We were able to break that [stereotype]."
Current president of Armenia and 1992 war lord Serzh Sarkisian's interview
(Thomas de Waal, "Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan through peace and war", New York & London: New York University Press, 2003, pp. 169-172)



"Sarkisian's account throws a different light on the worst massacre of the Karabakh war, suggesting that the killings may, at least in part, have been a deliberate act of mass killing as intimidation."
(Thomas de Waal, "Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan through peace and war", New York & London: New York University Press, 2003, pp. 169-172)


"… a survivor of the massacre, said he saw up to 200 people shot down at the point we visited , and refugees who came by different routes have also told of being shot at repeatedly and of leaving a trail of bodies along their path." 
The Times, 3 March 1992
"MASSACRE UNCOVERED"
BY ANATOL LIEVEN



BBC reporter was live on line and he claimed that he saw more than 100 bodies of Azerbaijani men, women and children as well as a baby who are shot dead from their heads from a very short distance.

(BBC) Reporter said he, cameraman and Western Journalists have seen more than 100 corpses, who are men, women, children, massacred by Armenians. 
BBC1 Morning News at 08:12, Tuesday, 3 March 1992


Armenian officials disputed the death toll and denied the massacre report. There were growing signs that many civilians were killed during the capture of Khojaly.

Refugees from enclave town of Khojaly, sheltering in the Azerbaijani border town of Agdam, give largely consistent accounts of how Armenians attacked their homes on the night of 25 February, chased those who fled and shot them in the surrounding forests. 
The Age (Melbourne), 6 March 1992
By Helen Womack, Agdam , Azerbaijan, Thursday



The foreign journalist in Aghdam saw the women and three scalped children with the pulled off nails among the killed people. This is not "Azerbaijani propaganda", but reality. 
Le Mond, 14 March 1992


Azerbaijan was a charnel house again last week; a place of mourning refugees and dozens of mangles corpses dragged to a makeshift morgue behind the mosque. They were ordinary Azerbaijani men, women and children of Khojaly, a small village in war-torn Nagorno-Karabkh overrun by Armenian forces on February 25-26. 
Newsweek, 16 march 1992

"MASSACRE IN KHOJALY"
By Jill Smolowe
Reported by Yuri Zarakhovoch/Moscow



The report of Memorial the Moscow-based human rights group, on the massive violations of human rights committed in the taking of Khojaly says of the civilians’ flight from the town: "The fugitives fell into ambushes set by Armenians and came under fire". 
Svoboda, 12 June 1992
"A TRAGEDY WHOSE PERPETRATORS CANNOT BE VINDICATED"



According to "Francois Zen Ruffinen, head of delegation of the International Red Cross in Baku, said the Muslim imam of the nearby city of Agdam had reported a figure of 580 bodies received at his mosque from Khojaly, most of them civilians. "We did not count the bodies. But the figure seems reasonable. It is no fantasy," – Mr.Ruffinen stated. 
The Independent, London, 12 June 1992


Over the night from 25 to 26 February 1992 the Khojaly town (Nagorny Krabagh), inhabited mainly by Azerbaijanis, was subjected to the massive attack from the Armenian side. 
Kommersant (Moscow)
27 February, 2002



"The circumstances surrounding the attack . . .on those fleeing Khojaly indicate that [Karabakh] Armenian forces and the troops of the 366th CIS regiment . . .deliberately disregarded this customary law restraint on attacks, under these circumstances, the killing of fleeing combatants could not justify the forseeably large number of civilian casualties."

"LETTER BY HOLLY CARTNER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF 
HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH/HELSINKI,
ADDRESSED TO MR. AL EXANDER ARZOUMANIAN
FOREIGN MINISTER, REPUBLIC OF ARMENIA"



I'm pleased to say that on January 25, 2005, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe overwhelmingly adopted a resolution highlighting that "considerable parts of Azerbaijan's territory are still occupied by the Armenian forces and separatist forces are still in control of the Nagorno-Karabakh region." 
Congressman Dan Burton's speech in the 
US House of Representatives

"What happened at Khojaly stands out as an appalling tragedy in a list of many that occurred during the course of the war.". 
Letter of Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth
Office to the Vatan Society,
24 February 2005
Letter by Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office 



In the early morning of February 26, the Artsakh Self-Defence Forces stormed the town of Khojaly, on the road between Khankendi (Stepanakert) and Agdam, which appeared to have been left almost undefended.
