Yere­van/Baku: Ar­me­nia and Azer­bai­jan ac­cused each other yes­ter­day of vi­o­lat­ing a hu­man­i­tar­ian cease­fire agreed three days ago to quell fight­ing over Nagorno­Karabakh that has claimed hun­dreds of lives in the past two weeks.

Eth­nic Ar­me­nian of­fi­cials in Nagorno-Karabakh said their to­tal mil­i­tary death toll was 542, up 17 from Mon­day when re­ports of fresh fight­ing drew ap­peals from Rus­sia and Euro­pean Union mem­bers to re­spect the truce.

Azer­bai­jan said 42 Az­eri civil­ians had been killed and 206 wounded since Septem­ber 27. It has not dis­closed mil­i­tary ca­su­al­ties. — Reuters
