Elmar Husseynov, Monitor
2 March 2005

Elmar Husseynov, editor of Azerbaijan’s opposition weekly Monitor, was shot dead as he returned to his apartment in the capital, Baku, on 2 March 2005. The gunman fired at Husseynov seven times, including twice in the heart, as he entered his apartment.

The Russian-language Monitor (circulation 5,000) had printed many investigations into corruption and abuses of power by government members and President Ilham Aliev himself.
