At least 13 people are now known to have died in a gun attack at a university in Azeribaijan.

It is thought two men entered the State Oil Academy in Baku this morning and opened fire on students starting classes. It is thought a number of lecturers have also been killed. A police spokesman said the attackers had been, in his words, “neutralised”, but did not confirm how many were involved or what their motives were. Some Azeri media have reported the men were foreigners, possibly a Georgian and a Syrian, but there has been no comment from officials on the claim. One witnesses was quoted as saying one of the gunmen killed himself and that the other was arrested.
