A mass grave of residents of the Khojaly region who became victims of the Khojaly tragedy in 1992 was discovered in the village of Askeran in the Karabakh economic region of Azerbaijan. It is located near the walls of the Askeran fortress. Correspondents of Vestnik Kavkaza visited the site.

The information about the mass grave was received during investigation from Rashid Beglaryan, who admitted his participation in the extermination of the civilian population of the Khojaly region. According to him, during the capture of the Khojaly distrcit, civilians were provided with a corridor to exit the Khojaly region to the Aghdam district.
