Armenians set fire to homes before handing villages over to Azerbaijan

A man reacts as he stands near a house set on fire by departing ethnic Armenians in the village of Cherektar in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, November 14, 2020. Armenians are resorting to a scorched earth policy as the clock ticks down to a handover of territory to Azerbaijan under a Russia-brokered peace deal that followed six weeks of fighting between ethnic Armenian forces and Azeri troops over the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas.

Still wearing the camouflage fatigues in which he had fought against Azeri forces a week earlier, Arsen, a 35-year-old ethnic Armenian, set fire to his brother's house (pictured) and his own house next door.
