Azerbaijan reports ‘sudden death’ of Armenian captive

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian captive Karen Petrosyan ‘died suddenly’ in Baku on Friday, Aug 8, after what Azerbaijan said was a cardiovascular collapse.

Resident of Armenian border village of Chinari (Tavush province) Petrosyan was captured Thursday. Being not sober, he presumably lost his way and crossed the border when searching for wood. According to some Armenian media reports, Petrosyan, often drank to excess.

Azerbaijan branded Petrosyan, who can hardly read and write, a saboteur.

It’s noteworthy that the photos taken immediately after the captivity show the 31-year-old man in sportswear. However, afterwards, he got into khaki. Besides, Azerbaijanis said they found pictures of weapons in his cell phone.

Meanwhile, head of Chinari village administration said Petrosyan’s phone was outdated and didn’t even have a camera.
