Ear wigging

Occasionally, the UK's listening post learns of its own diminution third hand.

BBC Monitoring (in future of uncertain address, but currently in Caversham) reports a story from the Azerbaijani news website Haqqin headlined "BBC leaves Azerbaijan". Haqqin in turn reports a source talking to Sputnik Azerbaijan, saying that BBC Monitoring is going to wind up its operations in Azerbaijan within six months and relocate to Tbilisi.

According to BBC Monitoring, their Baku office refused to comment on this, as did BBC HQ in London. The Monitoring outpost in Azerbaijan has been in business for more than 15 years.
