MOSCOW (Reuters) - Azerbaijan said on Thursday one of its soldiers had been killed in fighting over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

“Armenian military-political leadership is fully responsible for this bloody provocation along the line of confrontation and our response to the enemy will be shattering,” the Azeri defense ministry said in a statement.
