Dozens of soldiers have been killed in fighting between neighbouring countries Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said 49 of its soldiers died in overnight clashes.

The two countries have fought two wars and seen regular smaller clashes over three decades.

Russia said it brokered a ceasefire for the latest outbreak. Armenia initially said only that the fighting had calmed, rather than ended completely.

Later, Azerbaijan said it had completed its objectives following “provocations” from its neighbour.
