Demonstrations erupted in the center of Yerevan, Armenia on the evening of March 16 following the death of Arthur Sargsyan. Known as “bread bringer” during the police patrol station siege in July of 2016. Sargsyan died in Armenia Medical Center on Thursday afternoon. He drove his car to bring food to the fringe opposition group Sasna Dzrer, also known as Daredevils of Sassoun, during the Yerevan police station hostage crisis. Sargsyan was arrested on August 2 with the accusation of assisting the armed group Sasna Dzrer. He was released on December 31, 2017 but arrested again on February 9, 2017, at which point he began a hunger strike, further deteriorating his already poor health.
