YEREVAN (Reuters) - A soldier from the breakaway region of Nagorgo-Karabakh which is controlled by pro-Armenian separatists was killed overnight as a result of shooting from Azerbaijan's side, Nagorno-Karabakh's defense ministry said on Tuesday.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight, roughly at the time when the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed in Vienna on the need for a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement to the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
