Azerbaijan's second largest city has been attacked by missiles from Armenia as the conflict ramps up, an aide to the Azerbaijani president claimed.
The development marks a sharp escalation in the war that broke out a week ago in the South Caucasus despite calls from Russia, the US, France and the EU to call a ceasefire.
Until now, the main fighting had been between Azerbaijan and the separatist territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnic Armenian enclave inside Azerbaijan that is also known as Artsakh.
