According to a report by CNN, an Armenian protest leader was detained on Sunday, after talks with the country's newly-appointed prime minister broke down amid days of mass demonstrations. CNN reports that Nikol Pashinyan, opposition MP and leader of the protests calling for Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan's resignation, was taken in the capital Yerevan and brought to a local police station, according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Earlier the same day, a highly anticipated meeting between Pashinyan and the prime minister lasted just minutes, before Sargsyan reportedly walked out. The talks followed nine days of mass demonstrations in the capital, calling for Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan's resignation.
