Drone footage on Friday captures the ongoing protests against Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Yerevan.

Opposition supporters are seen along the Bagramyan avenue demanding the resignation of Pashinyan. They also camped out in tents outside the parliament.

The latest protest against the prime minister started on Thursday after a group of military officers wrote a letter asking the prime minister to step down.

Despite the renewed pressure, Pashinyan has refused to resign and called the army letter "an attempted coup".

Protests against the prime minister started in November last year after he signed the Russian-brokered deal to end fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenian forces over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Under the terms of the trilateral agreement, a number of Nagorno-Karabakh districts came under Azerbaijani control.
