As talks begin on bringing about a ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh, the cost of intense fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenian forces was clear in the enclave's de facto capital, Stepanakert, on Thursday.
The breakaway enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh is populated and ruled by ethnic Armenians, who have been scrambling for safety in bomb shelters, and in this church.
Seeking refuge from shelling by Azeri forces -- who want to return the enclave, which is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, to its control.
Tanks, heavy artillery and warplanes have been deployed in a week and a half of fierce clashes.
This footage from the Azeri defense ministry purports to show captured tanks bearing the Nagorno-Karabakh crest.
The United States, France and Russia are to talk to the Azeri side in Geneva, then the Armenian one in Moscow, to try to avert a wider war in the South Caucasus.
With fears Turkey, which supports Azeri forces, is being pulled in.
Hours before talks were due to start Thursday, Azerbaijan accused Armenian forces of shelling the city of Ganja, which lies deep within its territory and not in the disputed enclave.
Civilians were fired on in the Goranboy region and in other towns and villages, it said.
Both sides accuse each other of firing on civilian areas, including ones outside the breakaway enclave. Hundreds of people have been killed.
Azerbaijan wants Armenia to withdraw from Nagorno-Karabakh, but Armenia considers it part of its historic homeland.
