Food terrorism

By Messenger Staff
Friday, September 10
On September 7 a train which was transporting grain to Azerbaijan exploded in Dagestan. There were no casualties, but some carriages and tracks were damaged. The train was carrying grain to Baku. Following the explosion, services on the Russia-Azeri lines were temporarily suspended. Azeri MP Ali Masimlu called this act 'food terrorism' and demanded that the people who masterminded the act be found and punished. Masimlu indirectly blames the Russians; in addition he thinks that the Azeri territory is occupied and efforts are being made to exert extra pressure on Azerbaijan.
