Three Armenian Soldiers Killed Along Border With Azerbaijan

  • RFE/RL's Armenian Service

YEREVAN -- Armenian officials say three Armenian servicemen were killed when gunmen shot at a military vehicle along the border with Azerbaijan early on April 27.

It was not clear if the gunfire came from the Azerbaijani side.

The incident took place two days after a village in the same region came under fire from Azerbaijan.

No one was hurt in that attack.

Armenia and Azerbaijan remain locked in a dispute over Azerbaijan's breakaway, Armenian-populated region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

On April 24, two Karabakh soldiers were injured when a sanitary vehicle belonging to the Defense Ministry of the breakaway region came under fire from Azerbaijan.
