ISTANBUL — A Turkish hospital says Azerbaijan's energy minister has died in Istanbul while receiving treatment following a heart attack.

Istanbul's Florence Nightingale Hospital said Friday that Natig Aliyev, 69, died at the hospital a day earlier.

It said the cause of death was a brain hemorrhage that developed suddenly.

He had been flown to Istanbul for treatment on June 5, two days after suffering a heart attack in Baku, the hospital said.
