MOSCOW – An Armenian soldier was killed on Wednesday after snipers in Azerbaijan opened fire on Armenian military positions, the TASS news agency cited Armenia’s defence ministry as saying.

There have been a series of deadly border incidents between Armenia and Azerbaijan since a six-week war between ethnic Armenian forces and Baku over the Nagorno-Karabakh region and surrounding areas ended last year.
