Armenia and Azerbaijan agree new ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh

Armenia and Azerbaijan have said they agreed to a “humanitarian truce” starting at midnight local time. The announcement comes after Azerbaijan said 12 civilians were killed by Armenian shelling.

The foreign ministries of Armenia and Azerbaijan said in a statement on Saturday that they had agreed on a ceasefire, which will begin at midnight local time.

“This decision was taken following the statement of the presidents of the French Republic, the Russian Federation and
the United States of America, representing the co-chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group,” the statement said. 

A Russian-brokered ceasefire was agreed upon last Saturday to allow the sides to swap detainees and the bodies of those killed, but it broke down as both sides continued carrying out attacks.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more details emerge.
