A Ceasefire Starts on October 10 Between Armenians and Azerbaijanis

A ceasefire on humanitarian grounds starts at noon local time on October 10 between Armenians and Azerbaijanis, says a document agreed upon by Armenian, Azerbaijani and Russian foreign ministers. 

The agreement comes after a roughly 10 hour meeting between the three officials.

Additional parameters of the ceasefire will be negotiated.
