Opposition party's headquarters stormed

From Armenia Liberty:

Some 200 supporters of a pro-government group in Azerbaijan attempted to storm the headquarters of an opposition party Wednesday in a new sign of tension ahead of November 6 parliamentary elections, an AFP correspondent on the scene said.

Protestors chanted "Shame!" as they pushed against a police cordon in the ex-Soviet republic's capital Baku while trying to break into the opposition National Front party building. The crowd, from the Muasir Musavat (Modern Unity) party, said they were incensed by an opposition leader's alleged contacts with agents from Azerbaijan's neighbor Armenia.
