Death Toll from Fuel Depot Blast Climbs to 68 as Tens of Thousands Flee Nagorno-Karabakh

HeadlineSep 27, 2023

The death toll from an explosion at a fuel depot in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan has risen to 68, as tens of thousands of ethnic Armenians have been rushing to the border following a military blitz by Azerbaijani forces last week. Samantha Power, head of USAID, said the U.S. would provide $11.5 million in aid for the worsening crisis, and urged Azerbaijan to facilitate access to those in need by humanitarian workers. Armenia has warned of an ethnic cleansing campaign in the contested region.
