Roads to Armenian capital blocked due to opposition rally
21 Apr 04
It is rather difficult to get to Yerevan from Vanadzor today.
Meanwhile, those who managed to arrive in the capital said that both
highways from Vanadzor to Yerevan, the Vanadzor-Aparan-Yerevan and
Vanadzor-Sevan-Yerevan highways, were blocked.
Police officers from the Lori [Region] police station stopped all
vehicles without exception, irrespective of whether those were taxis
or private cars.
The police officers asked them why they are travelling to Yerevan and
whether they are planning to attend a rally set for 21 April.
