    Supporters of Armenia's opposition are calling for more protests after planned talks with the ruling party were cancelled.

    Many want a transitional government and new elections after Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan resigned.

    But tens of thousands marched for a different cause on Tuesday, to commemorate the mass killing of Armenians during World War One.
