Armenian Soldier Killed By Azeri Sniper

YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–The Armenian Defense Ministry said Monday that an Azeri sniper had killed an Armenian soldier. Warrant officer Garnik Melian was fatally shot in the chest Saturday near the Armenian city of Ijevan in what the ministry called an Azeri cease-fire violation. Clashes break out sporadically along the tense border, and the countries’ presidents have traded increasingly bellicose statemen’s.
