Tirayr Muradyan, a reporter for the Informed Citizens’ Coalition NGO, has been hospitalized after being attacked by several people in civilian dress while taking photos outside Government Building #3.

Muradyan told Hetq that he was wearing his press badge and that police officers witnessing the attack failed to intervene.

Protesters had converged on the building in an attempt to prevent civil servants from entering. Police on the scene then forcibly dispersed the protesters and took scores into custody.
