Azerbaijan, Armenia accuse each other of attacks, despite ceasefire
Despite a Russia-brokered truce on Saturday, Azerbaijan and Armenia are accusing each other of attacking cities overnight.
Azerbaijan and Armenia have accused each other of violating the terms of a ceasefire in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, raising questions about how meaningful the truce, brokered by Russia on Friday, would turn out to be.
Within minutes of the truce taking effect from midday on Saturday (08:00 GMT), both sides accused each other of breaking it.
For the past two weeks, both countries have been fighting over the disputed region, the truce allows them to exchange prisoners and recover bodies.
