    YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 27 (RIA NOVOSTI CORRESPONDENT GAMLET MATEVOSYAN) - A clash has taken place on the line of contact of the armed forces of the self-proclaimed Nagorny Karabakh republic and the republic of Azerbaijan. Victims are reported.

    The Yerevan news agency ARKA said on Friday with reference to sources in Stepanakert that on Thursday night an armed group from Azerbaijan tried to cross the first defense line of the Karabakh forces in the territory under control of Nagorny Karabakh - the eastern section of the line of contact near the populated place Bash Karvend.

    As a result of an intensive shootout, one member of the group was killed and several wounded. The group retreated, leaving the dead body in the separation zone near the Karabakh side.

    Units of the Karabakh army have not sustained losses.

    The incident has been reported to the OSCE and International Red Cross Committee offices accredited in Stepanakert.

    Negotiations are underway with the International Red Cross Committee on passing the dead body to the republic of Azerbaijan.
