Worsening ethnic tensions have forced about 1,000 Azerbaijanis to flee the disputed Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, and Armenians in the Azerbaijani city of Agdam are under special military protection to prevent violence, the Soviet Communist Party newspaper Pravda said. Azerbaijani villages in the disputed region are suffering severe food shortages, Pravda said Armenian nationalists living in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave of Muslim-dominated Azerbaijan have been agitating since February to break free from Azerbaijan rule and to be incorporated into Armenia.
