Nagorno Karabakh: Mass Wedding

517 Design [RU] posts photographs of a mass wedding which took place in the disputed mainly Armenian-populated territory of Nagorno Karabakh during which as many as 700 couples tied the knot. The blogger's English-language site also carries more information on the cash incentives ranging from $2,000-100,000 offered to the young couples to start large families in an attempt to increase the population of the self-declared republic. Unzipped also comments on the event, albeit putting the number of newly-weds at 687.
