Paramedics taken hostage in Armenia’s capital

The armed group that attacked a police building in Yerevan on July 17 reported two of its members wounded.

Law-enforcers offered medical aid, but the armed group refused. The armed group members’ relatives too called on them to take the wounded to hospital. Law-enforcers created all the necessary conditions for paramedics, but the armed group took them hostage.

Ashot Aharonyan, Head of the Press Service of Armenia’s Police, said that law-enforcers are negotiating release of paramedics.
