    Hopes dwindled that a Russian-brokered ceasefire between #Armenia and #Azerbaijan might hold Sunday, with both sides accusing the other of intensive shelling of civilian areas and escalating two weeks of fierce clashes. Azerbaijan’s foreign ministry said that overnight shelling by Armenian forces of the country’s second largest city, #Ganja, had left at least seven people dead and 33 wounded including children, less than 24 hours after the halt to fighting was supposed to take effect.
