Azerbaijan and Armenia accused each other on Saturday of fresh attacks in violation of a week-old Russian-brokered truce that has failed to halt the worst fighting in the South Caucasus since the 1990s.

Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, said 13 civilians were killed and more than 50 wounded in the city of Ganja by an Armenian missile attack, while Yerevan accused Azerbaijan of continued shelling.

The Azeri Prosecutor General’s office said a residential area in the country’s second-largest city, miles away from Nagorno-Karabakh, was shelled by missile strikes and around 20 apartment buildings had been hit.

A Reuters photographer in Ganja saw rescuers working at the scene on Saturday morning. Some houses had been almost leveled. An excavator was clearing the debris.
