Nagorno-Karabakh’s defence ministry said on Friday that one of its soldiers died late on Thursday after he was hit by gunfire from Azerbaijan’s forces.

Dozens died in clashes between Azeri and Armenian-backed forces over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh earlier this month.

A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of fierce fighting on April 5 but sporadic shooting still breaks out.
