YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenian protest leader Nikol Pashinyan said on Wednesday that supporters demonstrating against the country’s ruling elite had blocked a customs post at the border with neighbouring Georgia.

Pashinyan made the comments at a rally in the capital Yerevan, an online feed of the event showed.

Police were closely monitoring the protests on Wednesday as the acting prime minister suggested new parliamentary elections to defuse the political crisis.
