Azerbaijan detains 2 Iranians for violating sea borders

Two Iranian citizens, Mehran Yusif Nijat (born 1985) and Jamzemi Ismayil (born 1984) were detained for violating Azerbaijan's marine borders, the State Border Guard Service said in a message on March 9.

The SBS Coastal Guard received information about an unidentified sailing object entering Azerbaijani waters around 1:25 on March 8, the SBS told Azvision.az.  

Azerbaijani border guard ships and high-speed caters chased the object, giving auditory ‘stop’ signals and flashing lights. Finally, fire was shot as a warning signal at a distance of 250m from the target. As a result, the sailing object slowed down in speed.

After more than two hours of chasing, the sailing object was detained and inspected.
