Armenian PM Resigns After Days of Protest

Serzh Sargysan admits he was wrong to try to stay in power after 2 terms as president. In a statement, he said he was wrong to take up the post of prime minister after completing his term as president and was meeting the demands of the street movement. He said he didn't want to use other options, an apparent reference to police action that left at least ten protesters dead ten years ago at the start of his first presidential term. Also in the podcast: the only surviving suspect in the 2015 Paris Islamist attacks, Salah Abdeslam, has been found guilty of attempted murder during a shoot-out in Belgium two years ago, and a new baby boy has joined the British Royal family.
