Azerbaijan: Displaced and Trapped by 20-year-old Conflict


December 17, 2012

Published on December 16

When the former Soviet Union collapsed at the beginning of the 1990s, Azerbaijan and neighbouring Armenia went to war over disputed territory.

Thirty thousand people were killed and a million fled their homes before a tenuous ceasefire was agreed.

Damien McGuinness reports from Azerbaijan.
