The frontier guards detained the Azerbaijanis (residents of Georgia) who intended to have a swim in the river and accidentally crossed into Armenian territory, Eldar Mamedov, an official of Georgian border village of Sadakhlo, was reported as saying by Sputnik Georgia news agency.

Residents of Marneuli region Shakhin and Nadik Bediyev were detained on July 21 for illegal border violation.

The Bedievds were handed over to the Georgian side on the same day.
