‘MY HOME IS IN RUINS. I HAVE NOTHING LEFT’

BARONESS COX ALONGSIDE DISPLACED FAMILIES IN ARMENIA


Civilians in Nagorno Karabakh “hid under trees to escape aerial bombardments” with bodies “so destroyed” that DNA was needed to identify them, according to local witnesses who have been forced to flee their homes.

A mother-of-four told Baroness Cox on Tuesday: “My husband, a firefighter, was killed in attacks by Azerbaijan. I escaped in a car with my kids. But my home is in ruins. I have nothing left.” She said: “His body was so destroyed that we needed DNA to identify him. Everything in the village has been stolen or demolished.”
