    Azerbaijan’s president has vowed to fight on until Armenian forces leave disputed territory, on the fourth day of fierce fighting in the region. “We only have one condition: Armenian armed forces must unconditionally, fully, and immediately leave our lands,” President Ilham Aliyev said. More than 100 deaths have been reported in the heaviest fighting in years over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Officially part of Azerbaijan, it is governed by ethnic Armenians. The two former Soviet republics fought a war in 1988-1994 over the territory. Although Armenia backs the self-declared republic it has never officially recognised it. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource
