Eyewitnesses at the scene have told ArmeniaNow that a woman struck when a police vehicle drove into a crowd of protesters near the Yerevan Municipal Building was killed by the blow.

An American citizen in the crowd also said he saw the police vehicle move into the crowd at a low-rate of speed running over three protestors including the woman, whom he, too believed to have been killed. After the vehicle stopped and its driver removed, the crowd set fire and burned the vehicle and subsequently two others.

The Ministry of Health, however, told ArmeniaNow that there have been no fatalities resulting from today’s clashes between law enforcement and opposition protestors.
