April 30, 2009

12 people were fatally shot and 13 others were wounded yesterday when a gunman, a 29-year-old Georgian citizen, opened fire at the Azerbaijan State Oil Academy in Baku Azerbaijan before turning the gun on himself. A government statement gave no motive for the attack, but officials have rejected any political purpose. The academy has long been recognized as a major international centre for training oil industry specialists. Reuters | CBC | Associated Press
