Hundreds of pro-Armenian protesters gathered outside the Los Angeles Times building in El Segundo Tuesday evening, prompting police to close nearby streets, CBS Los Angeles reports.
In a tweet, the El Segundo Police Department announced that all eastbound lanes of Imperial Highway, between Douglas Street and Aviation Boulevard, were closed.
This is the latest in a series of protests staged in support of Armenia as tensions escalate between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Demonstrators said they were holding a peaceful protest calling for “fair coverage on Azerbaijan’s aggression toward Artsakh and Armenia.”
Earlier this week pro-Armenian protesters staged a protest outside the CNN building in Los Angeles.
