Yerevan: Nagorno-Karabakh`s defence ministry said on Friday that one of its soldiers died late on Thursday after he was hit by gunfire from Azerbaijan`s forces.

Dozens died in clashes between Azeri and Armenian-backed forces over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh earlier this month.

A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of fierce fighting on April 5 but sporadic shooting still breaks out.
