A bus carrying Russian and Armenian journalists, as well as a U.S. citizen described as a ‘volunteer’, was hit by artillery fire in Nagorno-Karabakh, the RIA news agency reported on Friday.

RIA’s correspondent said there were no casualties.

Meanwhile, Armenia‘s defence ministry on Friday said Nagorno-Karabakh air defence systems had shot down an Azeri warplane and two drones, an online government platform reported, but Azerbaijan’s defence ministry denied the report.

Fighting between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces continued for a sixth day in the heaviest clashes since the 1990s around the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, with both sides claiming to have inflicted significant damage on the other.
