Scary Azeri comments on the extradition to Azerbaijan [1] of Ramil Safarov, an Azerbaijani soldier who murdered an Armenian counterpart on a NATO training course in Budapest, Hungary, with an axe. The blogger criticizes the presidential pardon and honoring of the killer [2] in her native Azerbaijan while also abhorring the celebration of Safarov's freedom by many of her compatriots.
