Protests in Yerevan continued late into Sunday night with tens of thousands of Armenians gathering in the city centre despite earlier attempts by police to break up the march with batons and tear gas. Three opposition leaders including Nikol Pashinyan and around 230 protesters have been detained drawing criticism from the European Union. Demonstrators are demanding that newly appointed Prime Minister Serzh Sarksyan quit. Pashinyan was arrested after televised talks with Sargsyan collapsed, with the prime minister walking out. Critics accuse Sarksyan of ruling the South Caucasus nation of around 3 million people for too long, of being too close to Russia which has military bases inside Armenia, and of doing too little to root out corruption. Sarksyan says his country needs him and that his party enjoys large-scale popular support. Under a revised constitution approved in a 2015 referendum, most state powers shifted to the prime minister while the presidency has become a largely ceremonial post. Armenia is facing its biggest political crisis in a decade . The protests threaten to destablise a key Russian ally in a volatile region as "people power" takes to the streets.

Former New York mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg has said he will write a $4.5 million check to cover this year's US financial commitment to the Paris climate agreement. "Our foundation will uphold our promise to cover any cuts to UN climate funding by the federal government," Bloomberg said in the statement. Last year President Donald Trump pulled out of the pact making the US in effect the only country opposed to it. The move sparked international condemnation. The landmark Paris agreement reached in 2015 commits the US and 187 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels. As well as the limit on global temperatures, it includes a limit on the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity and a requirement for rich countries to help poorer nations by providing "climate finance". Trump staunchly opposes the agreement and his administration has rolled back a number of environmental regulations. In January, President Trump said the US could "conceivably" return to the deal if it treated America more fairly.
