    A Russian-brokered ceasefire in the disputed Caucasus region of Nagorno-Karabakh is coming under severe strain. Azerbaijan claims overnight shelling by Armenian forces has killed seven people in its second biggest city, Ganja. Officials say strikes targeted an apartment building. The two former Soviet republics are blaming each other for breaking the armistice in the long-running conflict. But even with hopes for a lasting truce dwindling, a pause in the fighting has given civilians there a chance to return home.
