A fragile ceasefire has begun between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh – after nearly two weeks of fighting, in which hundreds have been killed. The latest reports suggest that most areas are calm. Nagorno Karabakh is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, but it’s populated and governed by ethnic Armenians, who broke away from Azerbaijan in the 1990s.
