French journalists injured after shelling in Karabakh

Journalists from the French newspaper Le Monde came under fire in Nagorno-Karabakh, injuring two of them. This was stated on Thursday, October 1, by Head of the Center for Information and Public Relations of the Government of Armenia Hovhannes Movsisyan.

“The journalists of French Le Monde came under fire in the town of Martouni. Two of them were wounded. According to preliminary data, both are French citizens,” he wrote on his Facebook.

In her turn, Armenian Foreign Ministry official representative Anna Naghdalyan stressed on her page in the social network that about 200 foreign journalists from over 50 publications were accredited to cover the Karabagh conflict.

On the eve, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan convened a session of the Security Council to discuss the future actions of the Armenian Armed Forces in the context of escalation in Karabagh.

In addition, at the summit to be held on October 1 and 2, the heads of state and government of the European Union plan to call on the parties to cease fire in Nagorno-Karabakh.

However, on September 30, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said during a visit to the wounded from the fighting in the region that if the Armenian armed forces leave Nagorno-Karabakh, the fighting will stop.

Another aggravation of the situation in the unrecognized Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh occurred on September 27. Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of shelling and death among military and peaceful population.
