Heavy fighting breaks out between Azerbaijan and Armenia

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan broke out on Sunday over the separatist region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenian authorities said that at least 16 people had been killed and some 100 wounded.

Nagorno-Karabakh is an ethnically Armenian enclave within Azerbaijan that has been out of Azerbaijan’s control since the end of a war in 1994.

Both sides have a heavy military presence along a demilitarised zone separating the region from the rest of Azerbaijan.
