    Thousands of opposition protesters have been back on the streets of Armenia's capital, Yerevan, after the acting prime minister cancelled crisis talks with the opposition.

    Protest leader Nikol Pashinyan says he is ready to lead until new elections are held.

    His movement forced former leader Serzh Sargsyan to resign on Monday.
