    One person was killed and at least three injured when their car hit a mine near Nagorno-Karabakh on Tuesday.

    Officials in the Kashatagh district of the self-proclaimed republic say those injured include Ruben Khlghatian, the mayor of the western Armenian town of Armavir.

    The car’s driver was killed in the explosion.

    The injured were transported to a medical center in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, the head of the local rescue service said.

    According to the official, the injuries sustained by the survivors are not life-threatening.

    Nagorno-Karabakh’s authorities said last week that a group of Azerbaijanis had been arrested in the region on suspicion of espionage and subversive activities.
