Firefighters have been battling a huge blaze at one of Azerbaijan’s landmark buildings, just two months after it opened.

The Heydar Aliyev cultural centre in Baku was built in honour of the country’s former leader and founder of its ruling dynasty.

An investigation is underway into the cause of the fire at the large glass and aluminium structure which houses a concert hall, library and museum.
