YEREVAN (Reuters) - The defence ministry of the Nagorno-Karabakh region said on Friday it had recorded another 26 deaths among its military, pushing the toll to 376 since fighting with Azeri forces erupted on Sept. 27.

The fighting has surged to its worst level since the 1990s, when some 30,000 people were killed.
