YEREVAN. April 27


Three Armenian servicemen were killed when the border checkpoints in
the Tavush region of Armenia (northeastern Armenia) were fired at from
Azerbaijan, a source told Interfax on Friday.

The Armenian Defense Ministry promised to issue a statement in the near future.

Exchange of fire has become frequent on the Armenian-Azeri border in
the past few days.

On April 24, a sanitary vehicle belonging to the Defense Ministry of
the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh came under fire from Azerbaijan
(two servicemen were wounded). On April 25, the village of Doveg,
Tavush region of Armenia, came under fire from Azerbaijan. No people
