Remaining Gunmen In Armenia Standoff Surrender

Armed men who seized a police station in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, surrendered to police on the evening of July 31 after a two-week stand-off. The Armenian National Security Service said that 20 people were arrested. The group reportedly had 30 or so members when it stormed the police compound on July 17, demanding that President Serzh Sarkisian free jailed opposition leader Zhirayr Sefilian and step down.
