CWN Editor's Note: An estimated 66,000 Armenian Christians have fled Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) for Armenia following a military offensive by predominantly Muslim Azerbaijan.

“History is repeating itself,” Bishop Mikael Mouradian of the California-based Armenian Catholic Eparchy of Our Lady of Nareg warned, as he said that reports of the torture of civilians recall the Armenian Genocide.

“The so-called superpowers and democratic governments are doing nothing,” he added. “Yes, they are deploring the situation, but concretely, no one is helping on the ground. I don’t know what to say.”
