Pro-Armenia protesters blocked the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles, California, late on October 3, to bring awareness to the recent escalation of conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, reports said.
Local media reported protesters rallied against what they called the “aggression” of Azerbaijan in recent armed conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The long-disputed area is officially part of Azerbaijan but run by ethnic Armenians.
Los Angeles is home to the largest population of Armenians in the world outside of Armenia, according to local news reports. Credit: Ninel Melkonyan via Storyful
