On 12 September, speaking in the US Senate, Democrats Senator Bob Menendez (pictured right) described the efforts by the government of Azerbaijan to prevent food and medical aid from reaching 100,000-120,000 Armenians who have been besieged in the enclave of Artsakh which lies within Azerbaijan (pictured left). He also describes Azerabiajan's atrocieties: the murder of Armenian prisoners of war and the rape of Armenian women.
In this video, BBC journalist Orla Guerin interviews Azerbaijan President Aliyev, assuming that Azerbaijan press and politics are heavily censored, and presses him on that. He denies the accusation, then asks her why Julian Assange has been held inhumanely for years, if the British and western press are so free. The BBC journalist simply won't acknowledge the situation for journalists and the media in her own country, kind of proving the president's point.
