Dean Cain Marches in Armenian Protest

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actor Dean Cain joined hundreds of Armenian-Americans marching in the streets of Hollywood to mark the 90th anniversary of the mass killings of Armenians by Turks.

Wearing black T-shirts emblazoned with the words ``We've Had Enough,'' and hoisting signs saying ``Truth Always Prevails,'' the crowd marched down Hollywood Boulevard in Little Armenia while leaders released doves into the sky.

Many expressed their desire to have the killings recognized by Turkey and the rest of the world as a genocide.

``People were talking about losing two-thirds of their family, or their entire extended family,'' Cain said Sunday. ``So it's really inspired me to learn a lot more about it.''

The Armenian government says up to 1.5 million Armenians ultimately died or were killed over several years as part of a campaign to force them out of Turkey. Turkey does not deny that many Armenians died, but says that most were part of the general unrest during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Hundreds of thousands marked the anniversary in Armenia at the nation's massive stone memorial, and the country observed a moment of silence.
