At least one person has reportedly died after police in the Armenian capital broke up opposition protests.
Riot police moved into Yerevan's Freedom Square in the early hours and used truncheons to get rid of demonstrators, who have been in situ for 10 days after a presidential election they claim was rigged.
Dozens of people were injured in the dispersal.
Protesters then moved on to in front of the French embassy.
Several thousand opposition supporters have protested daily in the square since Prime Minister Serzh Sarksyan was elected.
Armenia's first president Levon Ter-Petrosyan has led the protests. He also ran in the election, which Western observers called broadly fair.
