Nagorno-Karabakh: Armenia accuses Azerbaijan of planning ethnic cleansing | DW News
Armenia is urging the United Nations to send a mission to Nagorno-Karabakh to monitor the security of ethnic Armenians there. Leaders say thousands of ethnic Armenians are without food or shelter. Azerbaijan has promised to protect human rights in the disputed enclave, which it seized control of this week. A ceasefire with separatists is still holding but Armenia has accused Azerbaijan of planning ethnic cleansing.
Azerbaijan has been tightening its grip on Nagorno-Karabakh since its lightning military offensive, which followed a months-long road blockade.
Now, badly needed humanitarian aid is starting to reach civilians trapped in the enclave, as people grow ever more worried for their own safety.
