Azerbaijan, Baku, 14 March /corr. Trend A.Gafarov / Due to the landslide in the territory of mass burial in Azerbaijan's district of Guba, the experts of the Archaeology and Ethnography Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan held inspection in this territory on 14 March. "If the landslide is not prevented, threats will appear for the territory where human remains were discovered," the Head of Institute's Guba expedition, Gahraman Agayev, reported to Trend on 14 March.
On 12 March landslide took place in the territory of mass burial in Azerbaijan's district of Guba. As a result, several sq.m of the territory crumbled and bones remained under ground.
In April 2007, mass human remains were discovered during the repair work in Guba stadium. It was made clear that more than 150 people had been buried there. The experts and scientists made clear that the remains are victims of massacre committed by the Armenians in Guba in 1918.
Agayev said that measures are being taken to prevent the landslide. According to him, an appeal was made to the Institute to begin an urgent examination in this territory.
Guba is located in 170km from Baku.
