Missiles fired by Azerbaijan hit the capital of the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region on Saturday morning, an official with Armenian separatists said, shortly before a ceasefire was due to take effect.

“Azerbaijan a few mins ago again struck #Stepanakert civilian areas with missiles. No data on casualties yet,” Karabakh rights ombudsman Artak Beglaryan said on Twitter.

An AFP journalist in the city reported hearing two explosions in the morning, after Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a ceasefire from noon Saturday (0800 GMT).
