Armenian couple gets married at a shelled cathedral

An Armenian couple got married at the heavily ruined Holy Saviour Cathedral in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which was attacked just two weeks before, according to local reports.

The groom is a soldier in Nagorno-Karabakh's army, and took two days' leave from the front line so that he could get married.

The Nagorno-Karabakh region lies in Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since the end of a separatist war in 1994.

The latest clashes between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces began on September 27, marking the biggest escalation of their decades-old conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Azerbaijan has denied attacking the building.
