Two Armenian soldiers were found dead in the early hours of Tuesday morning, it emerged on Wednesday.
The two, named as Private Igor Hakobyan and Private Koryun Harutyunyan, were found dead at 00:20 on May 3 in a military unit, according to local media.
Many soldiers, both Armenian and Azerbaijani, have been killed in clashes over Nagorno-Karabakh over the past few weeks, particularly between April 2 and 5 when the violence was at its worst.
However, initial reports suggest privates Hakobyan and Harutyunyan were not by Azerbaijani shelling.
“External examination revealed no signs of violence, gunshot or shrapnel wounds. Forensic examination and investigation is underway to clarify circumstances of the incident,” an investigative committee said.
