British Embassy “horrified” by video of Azeris shooting Armenian PoWs dead

The British Embassy said Monday, October 3 that it was “horrified” by a video that shows captured Armenian soldiers being shot by Azerbaijani forces.

The Embassy said in a statement, however, that they “welcome” the announcement by the Azerbaijani Prosecutor General’s Office of their “commitment to comprehensively investigate the video”.

“We expect the outcome of the investigations to be made public. We expect all allegations of mistreatment, abuse and summary killings to be fully investigated by the appropriate authorities,” the Embassy added.

In footage published online over the weekend, Azerbaijani troops are seen murdering several unarmed Armenian prisoners of war.

The latest round of fighting between the two countries began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. More than 200 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
