    Azerbaijani and Armenian forces battled for a second day on Monday after dozens were killed in an outbreak of heavy fighting that has raised fears of an all-out war between the longtime enemies. The former Soviet rivals have been locked since the early 1990s in a territorial dispute over the Armenia-backed secessionist enclave Nagorno-#Karabakh, with deadly fighting flaring up earlier this year and in 2016. FRANCE 24 International Affairs editor Philip Turle explains the decades-long conflict.
