    Three Armenians Killed In Mine Explosion

    Baku Today 22/03/2004 16:48

    Three Armenian civilians were killed and another six wounded after
    their jeep hit a land mine in Azerbaijan's occupied Nagorno
    (Daghlig)-Karabakh region (NK), a London-based demining organization
    said on Friday, according to the Associated Press.
    The explosion happened Sunday evening, the office of HALO Trust in
    NK's regional capital Khankendi (Stepanakert) said.

    NK, Azerbaijan's mainly ethnic-Armenian populated western region,
    remains laced with mines after it was occupied by Armenia in 1991-94
    war along with the country's seven administrative districts - Lachin,
    Kelbejer, Aghdam, Fuzulu, Jebrail, Zengilan and Gubadli.
    A cease-fire between Baku and Yerevan was signed in 1994, but the
    region's political status is unresolved and Armenian and Azeri forces
    face off across a demilitarized zone.

    Including the latest explosion, HALO said seven civilians have died
    in Azerbaijan's occupied territories. Nine people died in 2003.
