Armenia says four drones shot down near Yerevan capital

YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenia has downed four drones in the provinces near Yerevan, the capital, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Thursday, while a Reuters witness in the city saw a glowing object in the sky amid clashes with Azerbaijan.

Four drones appeared in Armenian airspace in the provinces of Kotayk and Gegharkunik, and Armenian air defence forces have destroyed them, Pashinyan said on social media as the conflict with Azerbaijan raged for a fifth day.
