Yerevan, 18 May: The US embassy in Yerevan is not commenting on reports of the murder of a US citizen in the Armenian capital in the evening of 17 May.

"No comment," the US embassy press service told a Mediamax correspondent today.

Several Armenian media, in particular Aravot and Aykakan Zhamanak newspapers, reported today that the US embassy employee had been killed in Yerevan in the evening of 17 May.

According to the newspapers, the corpse was discovered with stab wounds in the backyard of a building in central Yerevan.


Why would the US embassy not comment? I guess in time we will find out who Jashua is and what he was doing in Armenia.

Nonetheless, it’s very sad when someone is brutally beaten and stabbed to death, especially in Armenia.
