HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A group of pro-Armenia protesters continued to block Hollywood Boulevard at Highland Avenue into the Monday morning commute.

The protest in Hollywood began Sunday night, stretching into the next day amid calls to raise awareness and draw support for Armenia amid its military conflict with Azerbaijan over the disputed border region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Recent cease-fire agreements have collapsed, with both sides accusing the other of breaking the truce.
