The protests in front of Armenian embassies, the European Parliament and the ECHR took place at the initiative of the students, Azerbaijan Student Youth Organizations' Union (ASYOU) told APA.

During the protests, students demanded to punish those responsible for the killing of an elderly woman and two-year-old Zahra, both of whom died as a result of Armenian shelling the village of Alkhanly, Fuzuli on July 4. The students held various posters in their hands, which demanded that international structures not ignore Armenia’s aggressive policy against Azerbaijan.
