Burning CarA Toyota belonging to Suren Baghdasarian, editor of the weekly “Football Plus,” was destroyed by fire early on January 30 outside Baghdasarian’s Yerevan apartment, RFE/RL’s Armenian Service reported.

Baghdasarian told RFE/RL he believed the vehicle was deliberately targeted, but refrained from naming any suspects. When the car was damaged by a Molotov cocktail in February 2006, Baghdasarian accused Ruben Hayrapetian, a wealthy businessman who heads the Armenian Football Federation, of what he termed “a cheap act of revenge” for his paper’s criticism of the refusal by Armenian soccer champions Pyunik Yerevan to play a top Azerbaijani team in Moscow.
