Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community

There are no Armenians among the people taken captive as a result of a terrorist attack on the BP's oilfield in Algeria. Spokesman of Armenia's Foreign Ministry Tigran Balayan says, referring to Algeria's Foreign Ministry.
Earlier FrancePress quoted a representative of the terrorists as saying on the air of Al Jazeera that there was an Armenian citizen among the 41 captives.
The Algerian authorities suppose that the attack was organized by the Battalion of Blood group. It is not yet clear what the terrorists want. Some sources report that they demand stopping the military intervention in Mali, others say they want a ransom.
