Two servicemen have been detained on suspicion of complicity in the
murder of serviceman Aghasi Abrahamyan. One of them is an officer.

Spokesman of Armenia's Defense Ministry David Karapetyan says that
the Defense Ministry has sent a group of investigators to the area.

Military Prosecutor of Armenia Gevorg Kostanyan is also in Nagorno-
Karabakh.

"Armenia's Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan personally controls the
investigation. His deputy Vladimir Gasparyan will go there too,"
says Karapetyan.

The names of the detainees have not yet been made public. "The
investigation is underway, so, we may arrest more people," says the
Defense Ministry's Spokesman.

A group of mothers of soldiers killed in the army will assemble in
front of the Government building on Thursday at 11:00 AM. Their slogan
will be "Army without Murderers!"

To note, a number of Facebook users have created a group demanding
that those guilty of the death of Aghasi Abrahamyan should be found
and punished. The official report by Armenia's Defense Ministry says
that the unconscious soldier was brought to a hospital, where he
later died. The causes of the death are not specified.

Meanwhile, a number of news agencies claim that Abrahamyan is a
victim of violence in the army. The incident took place in the 7th
defensive area in Nagorno-Karabakh (better known as "Yeghnikner"
("Deer")). The boy's parents say that the body of their son was all
bruised up and one of his ears was almost torn off. They warn that
they will put the pictures of the dead boy on the internet if nothing
is done to find and punish the murderer.
