Azeri Sniper Kills Armenian Soldier

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A forty-seven-year-old Colonel from Armenia’s armed forces Radik Avetissian was shot and killed by sniper fire in Armenia’s northeastern Tavush region that borders the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Breaches of the cease-fire agreement are registered periodically in the area–which is a contact line between Armenian and Azeri armed forces. An escalation of tensions on the border was discussed at the recent Prague meeting between the foreign ministers of the two countries.
