The UN is alarmed by extrajudicial massacres of Armenians by Azerbaijanis

The UN Committee against torture has expressed alarm over reports of ill-treatment of Armenian prisoners by Azerbaijan. The Committee is also concerned about the more than six-month detention of 23 Armenians whom Baku accuses of terrorism. Eight former leaders of Artsakh, including social entrepreneur Ruben Vardanian, still remain in Azerbaijani prisons.
