Less than 40,000 Armenians remain in Nagorno-Karabakh 

ArmInfo. An exodus of ethnic Armenians from Nagorno- Karabakh continued 10 days after a  lightning military offensive that gave Azerbaijan complete control over the region, with thousands more people pouring over the border into Armenia proper.

Nazeli Baghdasarian, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinian, said that a total of 84,770 people had entered Armenia  from Nagorno-Karabakh as of 6 a.m. local time on September 29,  amounting to more than two-thirds of the region's estimated 120,000  inhabitants.

Pashinian has accused Azerbaijan of "ethnic cleansing" and warned  that no Armenian will remain in the breakaway region in the following  days.

"This is a direct act of ethnic cleansing that we warned the  international community about," Pashinian told a government meeting  on September 28, calling for concrete action by the international  community.
