A strong explosion with many casualties in a fuel warehouse occurred tonight near the Stepanakert-Askeran highway in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, Radio Free Europe reported.

Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh, a territory internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but outside Baku's control after the collapse of the Soviet Union, were forced to declare a ceasefire on September 20 after a lightning-quick 24-hour military operation by the Azerbaijani army.
