Five killed in fresh clash over Nagorny Karabakh

Armenian soldiers with the self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno-Karabagh walk through trenches at the frontline on the border with Azerbaijan, on October 25, 2012Azerbaijan said Saturday it had lost four troops in new clashes with arch-foe Armenia near the disputed Nagorny Karabakh region as mediators sounded the alarm over a spike in tensions in the protracted conflict. The fresh confrontations — which also led to the death of an ethnic Armenian soldier — come after Azerbaijan said Friday that eight troops had been killed in three days of fighting, with Moscow and Washington both expressing concern over the violence. The two ex-Soviet Caucasus nations have been locked in a long-simmering conflict over Nagorny Karabakh, a majority Armenian region within Azerbaijan that is de facto independent, with occasional skirmishes along the front. The sudden surge in tensions in a region that has been on a knife-edge for years comes as Armenia’s ally Russia is locked in a confrontation with the West over the future of ex-Soviet Ukraine.
