Yerevan: Armenian-backed forces have lost 97 soldiers, volunteers and civilians in renewed fighting over the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region, including 77 killed between April 2-5, the Armenian Defence Ministry said.

Azerbaijan, whose troops clashed with the Armenian-backed Nagorno-Karabakh forces, has said it lost 31 soldiers and four civilians on April 2-5. It has not published updated figures.

A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of fierce fighting on April 5 but sporadic shooting is still frequent at night.
