Thousands of people gathered on Sunday in Istanbul to commemorate the seventh anniversary of prominent Turkish- Armenian Journalist Hrant Dink's death, after he was assassinated in 2007.

A group, called “Friends of Hrant”, came together in Taksim Square, central Istanbul. The crowd walked in front of Agos newspaper, where Dink was shot down. They carried banners quoting “We are all Hrant, we are all Armenian” and “We will not forget or forgive”.

Turkish-Armenian Journalist Dink was murdered in January 2007 by Ogun Samast, who claimed that Dink insulted “Turkishness”.

Dink was Editor-in-Chief of the Turkish-Armenian newspaper Agos and considered one of Turkey’s most prominent Armenian voices.
