Yeni Fikir deputy arrested

From Radio Free Europe:

Azerbaijani authorities have detained another opposition youth activist on suspicion of plotting against the state, according to a local news report.

Azerbaijan's independent Turan news agency quoted lawyer Yavar Huseyn as saying police today apprehended Said Nuri, the deputy head of the Yeni Fikir (New Thinking), movement.

Huseyn said Nuri was remanded in custody on accusations that he received money to prepare a coup.

Yeni Fikir Chairman Ruslan Basirli was arrested last month on similar charges.
