Commemorations are under way in Armenia to mark the centenary of the start of mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.

Flowers were laid and a minute’s silence held at the memorial for the victims on the outskirts of the capital, Yerevan.

Armenia says up to 1.5 million people died, a figure disputed by Turkey.

Turkey strongly objects to the use of the term genocide to describe the killings and the issue has soured relations between the nations.
