Members of the Bulgarian National Assembly on Wednesday stood in a minute of silence for the victims of the mass extermination of the Armenian people in the Ottoman Empire.

The idea came from Atanas Zafirov of the BSP for Bulgaria parliamentary group after declarations on the subject were read out on behalf of Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria, BSP for Bulgaria, and Vazrazhdane. A fourth declaration, issued by GERB-UDF, was presented after the short ritual.

National Assembly Chair Rosen Zhelyazkov said the legislature's leadership had not included the minute of silence on the Assembly's agenda for the day, but Zafirov obviously did not resist the temptation for a second year in a row.
