FILM 5
AZERBAIJAN'S President Heydar Aliyev announced that an attempted palace coup against him had failed; apparently ending days of tension that threatened to thwart a recently signed $7-billion oil deal with Western investors.
In a speech broadcast on national television, President Aliyev told a crowd of thousands he had called to support him outside the presidential palace in the capital of Baku that the political crisis in the Transcaucasia state was over.
``I chose the path of making the use of all my means and experience in order to overcome these difficulties by peaceful means alone,'' he said. ``I am very pleased that these measures produced results and that we have now eliminated the tension.''
Interior Ministry officials announced later that government troops had reclaimed the airport and other buildings in the city of Ganja, about 188 miles northwest of Baku. Ganja is the power base of Prime Minister Surat Guseynov, whom Aliyev has accused of masterminding the coup against him along with Mahir and Rovshan Djavadovs. Mr. Guseynov denies the charges.
The drama began late last after the double-murder of two men close to Aliyev - Deputy Parliament Speaker Afiyaddin Jalilov and security chief Shamsi Ragimov - and the escape from prison of a number of Aliyev's opponents.
