Going astray: Two Armenian civilians held in Azerbaijan for crossing border released

Baku authorities have reportedly handed over to Armenia two Armenian citizens who crossed the border into Azerbaijan a few days ago and were apprehended by Azerbaijani armed forces.

The incident happened in the borderlands of the northeastern province of Tavush last weekend.

Armen Kaprielyan, who heads the working group affiliated with the Commission on Captives, Hostages and Missing Persons, told ArmeniaNow that on March 19 the Azerbaijani side officially confirmed that two Armenian citizens, identified as resident of the Noyemberyan area Durmush Karyan (later also identified as Mnatsakan Karyan) and resident of the village of Aygehovit, Ijevan area, Anahit Arakelyan – crossed the border on March 16 and 17, respectively, and were now being held in Azerbaijan.
