There is fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan. It could lead to a bigger conflict. It is over a border region called Nagorno-Karabakh. Many in the world say it is part of Azerbaijan but it has a majority Armenian population. Civilians and soldiers died in the clashes. Armenia said Azerbaijan started the conflict by launching missiles into the region. Azerbaijan said it launched missiles to "ensure the safety of the population".

Tensions started between the two countries after the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1994. The current clashes are the worst fighting in many years. A journalist said the fighting was, "a very serious escalation". Turkey said it would back Azerbaijan. Russia gave its backing to Armenia. It called for a ceasefire and urgent talks. Iran, which shares a border with Azerbaijan and Armenia, offered to arrange peace talks.
