A number of Azerbaijani historical monuments have been damaged during the construction of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan main export pipeline, says the Database Centre against International Terrorism and Corruption.
"Foreign companies involved in the construction operations are indifferent toward the issue," it said.

The organization also said that employees of these companies secretly sent the valuables encountered to London, while about a hundred cemeteries had been destroyed in the course of the operations.
The multi-billion dollar BTC pipe to take Azeri oil to international markets will become fully operational by June.
