By killing Armenian prisoner Karen Petrosyan, the Azeri army has proved once against that it is a medieval barbarous gang, preferring not to fight in the battlefield but to slaughter a sleeping soldier or a helpless prisoner, Nagorno-Karabakh's Defense Army said on Saturday.
"The murder of a prisoner is part of the Azeri Defense Ministry's policy to distort the truth about its defeats and casualties," the NKR Defense Army says.
31-year-old villager from Armenia's Tavush region, Karen Petrosyan, was captured by Azeris two days ago. On Friday the Azeri Defense Ministry reported his death from an alleged heart attack. But the Armenian side says the man had no heart problems and demands organizing an independent international examination.
