The April 21, 2006 Times of London reported on the "disappearance" of one of the medieval wonders of the Caucasus as an act of "cultural vandalism". An Armenian cemetery at Jugha near the southern boarder of Azerbaijan containing thousands of carved stone crosses dating from the 9th to 16th centuries has vanished apparently destroyed by the Azerbaijanis.
Azerbaijan has repeatedly dismissed Armenia's allegations as scaremongering and in turn accused Armenia of destroying hundreds of Muslim sites.
The Armenian foreign minister, Vartan Oskanian stated that "The irony is that this destruction has taken place not during a time of war but at a time of peace."
The Azerbaijanis contend that there was never an Armenian cemetery or any other Armenian cultural relics on the site.
My thanks to John Doherty who sent a copy of the times article.

John Arevian, who is in the US Army tells me that this person is either a sergeant or a staff sergeant, but he does not know which army. He noted the ribbon on the left side, but could not make it out.
