Armenia and Azerbaijan agree to ceasefire in Nagorno Karabakh conflict Updated: 2020-10-18 09:45:11 KST

Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed to a ceasefire in their conflict over the region of Nagorno Karabakh, which was due to take effect at midnight local time several hours ago now.
This comes after a truce brokered a week ago by Russia broke down.
The new ceasefire is described as "humanitarian" so the two sides can exchange prisoners and retrieve their dead.
Hundreds have been killed in the last three weeks fighting over Nagorno Karabakh, which is populated mostly by ethnic Armenians and has de facto independence, but is internationally recognized de jure as part of Azerbaijan.
