July 23 – The Day the Hostage Standoff Turned into Rebellion

Today an estimated 5000 marched from Erebuni to Republic Square and back, calling on people to join the civil consolidation movement. Today, the Sassna Dzrer group set three police service vehicles on fire as a sign of protest as military helicopters were hovering above and electricity in the area has been cut off.   A look inside the Erebuni police station under siege on the day the last hostages were set free and developments started taking on a new dimension.
