Spokesman of Armenia's DM: Armenia's response to murder of Smbat Tsakanyan will not be long

 Armenia's response to the murder of Smbat Tsakanyan will not be long, Spokesman of Armenia's Defense Minister Artsrun Hovhannisyan told ArmInfo on Thursday.

He said that the enemy will receive a painful response for the cruel murder of the boy and its recent attack on Nagorno- Karabakh's territory.  Radio Liberty quotes the head of the Karvachar community Vitaly Daniyelyan as saying that Tsakanyan, a 17-year-old boy killed by Azeri raiders last week, was buried on Wednesday in a closed coffin. Even his parents were not allowed to see his body as it lied in the sun for almost a week and was in a very bad state. 

Tsakanyan's dead body was found in woods between the Karvachar and Manashid communities in Nagorno-Karabakh's Shahumyan district on Tuesday. 

The boy had been missing since July 7. His father Mekhak said that his son was alone on the day when a group of Azeri raiders attempted an attack on Karvachar. He was sure that the boy was kidnapped as some property in the house was also missing.

Last week Nagorno-Karabakh's troops prevented an Azeri raid on Karvachar. Some of the raiders were killed, two – Gulin Shahbaz Jalaloglu and Dilhan Gardashhan – were detained and are now facing criminal charges.

It was one of the detainees who told Nagorno-Karabakh's police where the body was.
