YEREVAN, June 14: Thousands of Armenians staged a new rally Thursday against Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, a day after clashes between anti-government protesters and police left more than 100 injured.
Protests have gripped Yerevan since April, when authorities agreed to hand back to its rival Azerbaijan territory that Armenia had controlled since the 1990s.
Around 4,000 people gathered outside the parliament building in Yerevan for a rally led by the archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, an AFP reporter saw.
"The authorities are guilty of bringing this country to disaster," Galstanyan told the crowd.
"We have shown yesterday that we have no fear and that our movement will persist," he added, vowing to force Pashinyan to resign.
On Wednesday, 101 people were injured after police fired stun grenades during an anti-government rally outside parliament, Armenias health ministry said.    —AFP
