Armenian Village Mayor Killed

The mayor of a village near Yerevan affiliated with the opposition Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun) was shot and killed by an unknown gunman on Tuesday.

Hrach Muradian, who has governed the village of Proshian since 2005, was found dead outside his office early in the morning. Muradian, 50, had a single gunshot wound to his head. Nobody was immediately arrested in connection with the shooting.

Dashnaktsutyun, which is one of Armenia’s main opposition parties, swiftly condemned the murder and linked it with Muradian’s work as Proshian mayor. It described him as an “exemplary leader” who was loved and respected by fellow villagers.
