This sad news came today:

Mejnun Vahidov (27.07.1946- 30.04.2009)
It is my very sad duty to inform that,on April,30,in the capital of Azerbaijan,Baku,during an attack of a gunman on the State Oil Academy among those killed was the well-known problemist Medjun Vahidov.
M.Vahidov was a co-author of several themes in chess composition ,like,the Vladimirov theme (1977),the Azerbaijanian Novotny (1981),the Bakunian Novotny (1985) and others.
He has published about 200 compositions,got awards and had an entry in a FIDE Album.
For several years,Medjnun Vahidov carried the duties of President of Azerbaijan CCC.
He worked at the Academy for 30 years where he was an assistant professor.
M.Vahidov had a candidate degree in technical siences.
He has wriiten two books on chess composition.
Bisides his work and chess M.Vahidov has written many literature works and scenarios ,like ,short humoristic stories and a very popular TV
comedy show ' Half-staffer'.
Medjnun Vahidov will always be in our memories.
