      Georgian orthodox church locked in Azerbaijan

      Reports say that the Orthodox Saint George's Church in Kakhi, the
      only one in Saingilo region of Azerbaijan, largely populated with
      people of Georgian descent, was locked by local Azeri residents. They
      took away keys from the pastor, locked the door and warned local
      Georgians from attempts to conduct Christian service in the church.

      'There certainly are forces in Azerbaijan looking for deterioration
      of relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan', Zviad Dzidziguri,
      leader of the opposition Conservative Party said at the press
      conference on Monday.

      According to him, it was not the first action taken against Orthodox
      churches. The brutal actions were frequent against the David Gareji
      Monastery Complex in the Georgina-Azeri border zone, when frescoes
      were vandalised.
