Azeri opposition offices 'ransacked'

From Radio Free Europe:

The opposition Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan (AXCP) says unidentified attackers today ransacked its offices in the exclave of Nakhichevan.

Azerbaijan's independent Turan agency quotes Nakhichevan AXCP leader Asaf Quliyev as saying the assailants, numbering 25 and armed with metal bars, beat up party activists, and destroyed furniture before escaping. There was no immediate comment from regional authorities.

Quliyev links the attack to the anti-government rally that took place in Nakhichevan on 26 July. The demonstration, sanctioned by regional authorities, took place without noticeable incident.
