Armenia kills 2 Azeri in Nagorno-Karabakh: Azeri TV
Armenian soldiers killed two Azeri citizens in Nagorno-Karabakh on Saturday, Azerbaijan's ANS television station reported on Sunday, five days after one of the worst breaches of a 1994 ceasefire in the disputed region.

Neither the Azeri or Armenian government could be reached to confirm or deny the report.

Muslim Azerbaijan and Christian Armenia fought a 1992-94 war over Nagorno-Karabakh which killed around 35,000 people.

The two sides are still technically at war and diplomatic ties have been cut.

On Wednesday Azerbaijan and Armenia accused each other of triggering one of the worst breeches of the ceasefire.

Azerbaijan said an Armenian attack killed 12 of their own soldiers and four Azeri soldiers. Armenia said Azerbaijan had triggered an attacked which killed eight Azeri soldiers.

Armenian president Robert Kocharyan last week ordered emergency laws in the capital Yerevan after street battles between protesters and police killed eight people. The protesters say he rigged a Feb. 19 election.
