YEREVAN: A soldier from the Armenian-backed Nagorno-Karabakh region was killed by gunfire from Azerbaijan on Tuesday morning, said the defense ministry of the breakaway region.

Dozens died in clashes between Azeri and Armenian-backed forces over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh earlier this month.

A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of fierce fighting on April 5 but sporadic shooting still breaks out.
