MOSCOW (Reuters) - The defence ministry of the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh said it could report 23 more casualties on Wednesday as fighting continued between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces in the area.

Dozens have been reported killed and hundreds wounded in fighting since Sunday that has spread well beyond the enclave’s boundaries, threatening to spill over into all-out war between the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia.
