Nine Azerbaij schoolchildren have died since the outbreak of hostilities between Yerevan and Baku in the breakaway republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, the country's education minister, Emin Amrullayev, said on Friday.
"Nine of our students have died in the last month, schools have become unfit for holding classes," Amrullayev said at a briefing.
The fighting over the disputed territory has been ongoing since September 27 with both Armenia and Azerbaijan holding each other responsible for the current state of the conflict. (/Sputnik)
