YEREVAN - Armenia accused Azeri forces on Saturday of shooting dead three ethnic Armenian soldiers in the last 48 hours on the frontline of breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh, where tensions have raised fears of war.

Azeri officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

The mainly Armenian-populated enclave broke away from Muslim Azerbaijan with the backing of Christian Armenia as the Soviet Union collapsed, in a war that killed 30,000 people.
