Two Armenian soldiers have been killed on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan's Nakhcivan's Autonomous Republic. Armenian sources say that the two soldiers were killed by Azerbaijani sniper fire. The area was the scene of a similar incident earlier this week in which an Azerbaijani soldier died. The soldiers were 26 year old Andranik Yegoyan and twenty-two year old Boris Gasparyan. Despite cease fire that has been in place for the last twenty years daily incidents are resulting in increasing fatalities on both sides.
