BAKU (Reuters) - Three Azeri servicemen were killed in fresh fighting with Armenian-backed separatists over the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region on Monday, Azerbaijan's Defence Ministry said.

Azerbaijan had halted its attacks but Armenia was still "aggravating the situation", attacking Azeri positions and shelling nearby settlements, the ministry said in a statement.
