Fears of wider war as Azerbaijan-Armenia fighting escalates – BBC News

President Putin of Russia has called for an end to hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region — he said the fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia was a tragedy — while Iran warned it could escalate into a wider regional war. The current fighting is the worst seen since a war between Azeris and Armenians in the 1990s.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by international correspondent Orla Guerin from the city of Tartar in Azerbaijan.
