NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Damage was evident on both sides of the conflict over the breakaway territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, as a shaky ceasefire began to take hold. Tanks were driving around the streets of the mountainous village of Talysh inside the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh on Wednesday (April 6), a day after a new ceasefire was agreed. Meanwhile, on the other side of the frontline, residents in the Azeri village of Horodiz assessed damage to their properties. The village of Horodiz saw some of the fighting between Azerbaijan's troops and Karabakh forces backed by Armenia, local residents say. The ceasefire has been holding despite both Azerbaijan's defence ministry, and the Armenian-backed military in Nagorno-Karabakh saying that they were observing the ceasefire while their opponents had been violating it. The ex-Soviet states of Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a war over the mountainous territory in the early 1990s in which thousands were killed on both sides and hundreds of thousands displaced.
