October 5, 2020: Azerbaijan's second-largest city, Ganja, has been attacked by Armenian forces, as heavy clashes continue over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh enclave.



The self-proclaimed authorities said that they hit Ganja's military airport after Azerbaijani forces attacked the region's capital, Stepanakert.



More than 220 people have died since clashes began a week ago.



Azerbaijan's military said that its forces have re-taken control of seven villages since last Sunday, while Nagorno-Karabakh says its troops have "improved" their frontline positions.
