The death toll in an explosion in Nagorno-Karabakh is 125 people, more than 28.000 people fled to Armenia
At least 125 people died and almost 300 were injured in an explosion at a gas station in Nagorno-Karabakh, the authorities in that region said.
The authorities previously announced that at least 20 people had died, Radio Free Europe (RSE) reports. The cause of the explosion has not been determined.
Officials say more than 28.000 people who fled Nagorno-Karabakh have arrived in Armenia.
Thousands of people jammed the mountain roads west of the region in Armenia itself.
Traffic was again at a standstill as hundreds of cars and trucks jammed the main road through the so-called Lachin Corridor and people flooded into the Armenian border town of Goris. About 120.000 people, mostly ethnic Armenians, live in Nagorno-Karabakh
