Varduhi Avetyan remains awaiting information from her son that joined the fighting for over a month past.

Thousands were killed on either side. Thousands and thousands of people were homeless.

The war ended with a truce in 1994 but violence flared up in recent months, which led to hundreds, if not tens of thousands of deaths.
