Criminal case launched into Azerbaijan shooting at Armenia TV crew

Armenia’s Shant TV crew, which was passing along some military positions that are under the protection of a unit of the Republic of Artsakh Defense Army, was shot at by Azerbaijan, on Wednesday at around 6pm.

STEPANAKERT, MAY 11,  ARTSAKHPRESS:  The Investigative Committee of Armenia informed that, in particular, the adversary fired shots from large-caliber weapons—sniper rifles and machine guns—toward the vehicle of the said TV crew. 

As a result, cameraman Davit Atoyan sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to military hospital. 

A criminal case is initiated on charges of the adversary’s attempt to deliberately kill persons, on grounds of national and religious hatred.

An investigation is underway.
