25 Sentenced for Coup

BAKU, Azerbaijan () -- An Azerbaijani court has sentenced 25 members of an armed group that supported a coup attempt by the country's former prime minister to jail terms of up to 15 years, Interfax said Wednesday.


The group was accused of involvement in an attempted coup led by ex-Prime Minister Surat Huseinov, who briefly seized power in several different areas of Azerbaijan in October 1994.
