Azerbaijan: Displaced and trapped by 20-year-old conflict

Help

When the former Soviet Union collapsed at the beginning of the 1990s, Azerbaijan and neighbouring Armenia went to war over disputed territory.

Thirty thousand people were killed and a million fled their homes before a tenuous ceasefire was agreed.

Nearly two decades on, the two countries are still trapped in the conflict. About 30 people are being killed every year and fears are growing of a return to full-blown war.

Damien McGuinness reports from Azerbaijan.
