On the frontline of Armenia’s conflict with Azerbaijan

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Armenia and Azerbaijan are blaming each other for the surge in fighting across the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh – which has already left over 200 people dead.

Most of the territory is ethnically Armenian. Their forces have controlled it since the end of the separatist war in 1994 – even though it’s located inside Azerbaijan.

Fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh has intensified over the last 8 days, with reports of heavy artillery fire on it’s capital, Stepanakert, since Friday.

Baku claims that Armenian forces have shelled civilian areas in several towns, including the city of Ganja – which lies outside the territory.

This programme has been able to film inside the enclave – revealing what’s happening on the frontline of the conflict.
