Humanism Azeri style: doctor shelled trying to aid man blown up by mine

PanARMENIAN.Net - A resident of the Armenian village of Aygedzor on border with Azerbaijan died after stepping on a mine.

After the 26 year-old Edward Dallakyan’s leg was torn off by the mine blast, the doctor who tried to help him was shelled by Azeris.

“Azeris opened fire, the shelling was ongoing for 30-40 minutes, preventing the doctor from approaching Edward. In about an hour, we managed to come close to the injured, yet the man bled to death on the way to a hospital. He was only 26 and was expecting his first child,” quoted the Village administration head Sasun Safaryan as saying.

An investigation in underway, with forensic medical examination scheduled, Armenian police said.
