Riot police used stun grenades, tear gas and batons as they clashed with hundreds of protesters in the Armenia capital, Yerevan, on the night of July 29 near a police compound occupied by an armed opposition group. The violence erupted amid the sound of gunshots and explosions coming from the compound located in a southern district of the city. Riot police tried to prevent demonstrators who back the opposition group from reaching the besieged building. RFE/RL’s Armenian Service said three of its correspondents reporting from the protest were beaten with batons, apparently by plainclothes policemen. (RFE/RL's Armenian Service)
