YEREVAN (Reuters) - A soldier from the Armenian-backed Nagorno-Karabakh was killed by gunfire from Azerbaijan on Thursday morning, the defense ministry of the breakaway region said.

Dozens died in clashes between Azeri and Armenian-backed forces over Nagorno-Karabakh earlier this month.

A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of fierce fighting on April 5 but sporadic shooting still breaks out.
