From online dispatches
DHA photoIstanbul police detained nine people today over alleged links to an anti-Armenian rally which took place in February, broadcaster NTV reported on its website.
A rally planned to commemorate the victims of the Khojaly massacre of 1992 degenerated into a racist, anti-Armenian demonstration on Feb. 26, prompting the authorities to launch a probe into the incident.
Police have detained nine people, two of whom are women, after being identified as having carried racist banners that read "You are all Armenians, you are all b.....s," during the rally.
The suspects told the police that they were handed the banners by people they did not know before the rally.
The police released the suspects after questioning them.
