Mass brawl erupts in Armenian parliament: Third violent bout in just two days

A mass brawl has erupted inside the Armenian parliament building for the third time in just two days.

Wednesday’s altercation is said to have started after the opposition leader Vahe Hakobian was heckled for calling Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian a “lying populist”.

The speaker of the house called on security personnel to remove several members from the parliament floor in an attempt to end the disturbance.
