Yerevan Cops Close Road to Police Station Taken Over by Armed Attackers
Yerevan police have closed the road leading to the Erebouni Police Department that had been taken over earlier today by a group of armed men.
A Hetq reporter on the scene has sent the following photos.
According to the RFE/RL Armenian Service, police cars and armored vehicles have blocked the road.
Varouzhan Avetisyan, a member of the Founding Parliament opposition group, says that those who seized the police station are members of the group and are demanding the release of Jirayr Sefilyan.
Sefilyan, a well-known opposition activist and Artsakh War veteran, was arrested on June 20 on suspicion of illegal arms trafficking and possession.
