77-year-old Armenian shepherd Mamikon Khojoyan, who was taken captive by Azeris on Jan 28, has been sent back to Armenia and is in hospital now.
Spokesman of Armenia's Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovahnnisyan says that Khojoyan has a broken hand and a gun wound scar.
The prefect of Verin Karmiraghbyur (Khojoyan's village) Kamo Chobanyan says that the old man has signs of violence on his body, does not recognize anybody and is almost silent. "He just said that throughout the capture he slept on concrete," Chobanyan says.
Khojoyan has been returned through the agency of the ICRC.
