Police remove barricades, restore traffic on Baghramyan Avenue

The Police today restored the traffic on Baghramyan Avenue, which had been a site for round-the-clock protests against electricity price hike for almost two weeks.

The Police earlier removed the barricades after the protesters refused to do it themselves at about 12:30.

A number of people were detained, but the Police say they will be released within three hours.

The protests were sparked by the decision of the regulatory body to increase the price of electricity from August 1, 2015.
