December 26, 2006 -- An Azerbaijani opposition journalist has been hospitalized after being attacked in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku.
Ali Rza, deputy editor of the "Azadliq" (Freedom) opposition newspaper, says Nicat Huseynov was assaulted on December 25 by four men who beat him and tried to stab him.
He said Huseynov is being treated for internal injuries. Two reporters for the same newspaper were attacked earlier this year. One of them was killed.
