YEREVAN (Armenpress)–News reports from Azerbaijan’s capital–Baku–claim that two Armenia’s–a lieutenant and a soldier–were arrested in the district of Barda in central Azerbaijan on August 4.
The reports said that the Armenia’s might have left their unit without permission or ended up in the Azerbaijani territory by mistake.
According to an Azeri MPA news agency–the officer and the soldier tried to steal a Zhiguli car outside the district market. Local residents intervened in the quarrel between the Armenia’s and the driver and prevented them from carrying out their plan.
One of the Armenia’s was armed but he did not use his weapon. They were detained and handed over to the military police. However–the Azerbaijani defense ministry has not yet confirmed the news.
