The two neighbors have been fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh, which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but has been controlled by ethnic Armenians supported by Yerevan since a six-year war that ended in 1994. The last time they fought was in 2020. Not going away anytime soon.

To have been expected.

Heathrow Airport has said about 15% of its schedule will be altered on Monday during Queen Elizabeth's state funeral.
This is to ensure the skies over London fall quiet during the events, it said.
