Clashes break out between Armenia and Azerbaijan over disputed region
Long-standing tensions between bordering countries Armenia and Azerbaijan have escalated over the weekend in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Both countries have accused one another of conducting attacks against civilians due to casualties reported. The former Soviet republics have been fighting over the territory for years, even after a war that concluded in 1994. The contested area lies within the borders of Azerbaijan, and despite the recent flare-up in conflict, military interference in the region is not uncommon.
