Thousands Of Azerbaijan Protesters Demand War Against Armenia

BBC: Azerbaijan protesters demand war after Armenia clashes

Thousands have demonstrated in Azerbaijan calling for war after recent deadly clashes with neighbouring Armenia.

Protesters marched through the capital Baku demanding the government fully deploy the army, with some even entering the national parliament.

Security forces responded with water cannon and tear gas to disperse the crowds.

The recent border fighting has killed at least 16 people.

Both Armenia and Azerbaijan were part of the Soviet Union before its collapse in the 1990s.

Since then they have been stuck in an unresolved conflict over a piece of disputed territory called Nagorno-Karabakh, internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but controlled by ethnic Armenians.
