(AFP) - A ceasefire monitoring mission from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) along frontlines between Azerbaijani soldiers and ethnic Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh was stopped Tuesday after gunfire.
"During the monitoring today, a single shot was heard by both OSCE groups conducting monitoring along the frontline. The monitoring was stopped," Olexandr Samarski, an OSCE field assistant, told AFP.
The monitors were near the village of Karakhanbeili in the Fizuli region. The OSCE conducts regular monitoring missions along the frontlines, where a ceasefire has held since 1994 despite frequent shooting incidents between the two sides.
