On January 29, an anonymous YouTube user uploaded a 4-minute video featuring Georgia's former Minister of Internal Affairs, Vano Merabishvili, ordering his subordinates to bring him two corpses: “I want two men, two dead bodies, bring me two dead bodies. That’s it. Reward will be high.” The video shows the preparation for the special search operation to hunt down the escaped suspects of the 2009 Mukhrovani mutiny.

The Geneva interim agreement in November, 2013, between six world powers and Iran on its disputed nuclear program could mark the start of one of the most significant transformations in the Middle East over the last decades, with ramifications across Eurasia. Azerbaijan, as one of Iran's neighbors and sharing certain religious, ethnic, and cultural commonalities with Iran, should be considered among the countries most influenced by the success of negotiations with Iran, even in terms of Azerbaijan's domestic development.
