Thousands of demonstrators in the Armenian capital Yerevan have called on the government to resign, in the former Soviet republic’s largest protest for three years.

The opposition are predicting a bloodless “velvet revolution” inspired by the Arab uprisings.

They accuse the current president, Serzh Sarkisian, of vote rigging to get elected.
