quite a few photographs on the workers contained in the embassy administration
constructing, on account of which the embassy worker Orkhan Asgarov

Another member of the mission, Vasif Tagiyev, attacked the

him. While an embassy officer was neutralizing the terrorist, the

However, Vasif Tagiyev continued to battle the terrorist and managed
to grab the journal from the machine gun. At this time, the
terrorist pulled out a pistol from his jacket and opened hearth, this
time wounding Tagiyev within the chin (later, when inspecting the
territory of the embassy, a Colt pistol was discovered, which the
attacker dropped). Despite the harm, Tagiev managed to attract the
legal out the embassy constructing.
Despite the truth that the terrorist entered the embassy by

residences within the mission constructing, the place relations of
diplomats dwell. During this time, the terrorist set hearth to the
tires of the automobile belonging to the embassy twice with a flamable
substance that he had introduced with him.
Seeing that the sturdy entrance door was troublesome to open with
automated weapons, the terrorist tried to interrupt the door with a
sledgehammer, which he took out of the trunk of a automobile, and entered
the embassy a second time to kill diplomats and their households.
Tagiev threw a fireplace extinguisher on the attacker, who tried to
climb to the second ground of the embassy, and wounded him within the
head (these moments weren’t recorded by surveillance cameras), as
a results of which the terrorist was compelled to depart the
Once on the road, the attacker as soon as once more pointed to folks
standing within the distance and lowered his machine gun. Taking
benefit of the truth that the police didn’t intervene, the
terrorist once more tried to set hearth to the automobile of the consultant
workplace with a flamable combination equivalent to a Molotov cocktail, which
he had introduced with him. And solely when the attacker set himself on
