They are demanding justice after government officials were implicated in a scandal involving stolen coal.
Some want the parliament to be dissolved.
Others are frustrated by rising inflation and a worsening economy.

But the former’s war in Ukraine and the latter’s strict COVID-19 policies have put pressure on Mongolia’s economy.
