Protests Erupt in Armenia After Signing of Deal to End Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict

HeadlineNov 10, 2020

In Armenia, protesters stormed a government building in the capital Yerevan Monday night following the announcement of an agreement to end the raging six-week conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Protesters say the deal, which was signed by the president, does not represent the will of the Armenian people, and the Armenian prime minister said military actions in the region are not over yet. The deal came after Azerbaijan seized control of the second-largest city in Nagorno-Karabakh and after Azeri forces admitted to shooting down a Russian helicopter, which they claimed was an accident. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday Russian peacekeepers will be deployed along the frontline. It is estimated the conflict has killed at least 1,000 people and displaced over 100,000, though some say the death toll is much higher.
