whatwaswritten says that the son of an opposition leader in Azerbaijan serving in the army has been sent to the front line following this weekend's protests in Baku [1], the capital. The post notes that some are alleging the move is part of an attempt to warn the opposition not to hold any more rallies although the political figure in question says he does not want to politicize the issue [2].
