GYANJA, Azerbaijan (Reuters) - An assassination attempt and protest in Azerbaijan's second city have sent a warning to the ruling elite that discontent is simmering in the tightly controlled, oil-producing state. Police have arrested a local man over the attack in which Elmar Veliyev, mayor of the northwestern city of Gyanja, was shot and wounded in front of his office on July 3.

PUBLISHED: 18:18 06 June 2018 Sophie Morton Khranjit Nijjer Picture: Met Police Met Police A woman who sent money, phone chargers and clothing to her Islamic State-supporting husband in Syria has been jailed for five years and three months. Khranjit Nijjer, formerly of the E16 area - which includes Canning Town and North Woolwich - was sentenced today having previously pleaded guilty to two counts of funding terrorism.

The payment was made by a London-based man, but when officers spoke to him, he explained that he had been asked by Nijjer to make the … [Read more...] about Woman jailed for sending money to Islamic State-supporting husband in Syria
