Activist detained during protest against demolition (video)

The demolition of the Afrikians’ House, another historic building in Yerevan, started about an hour ago. A group of activists are gathered near the old building protesting against the demolition.

One of the activists, Sona Asatryan was detained by police some time ago after she tried to tear off the posters that read, “A more comfortable and prosperous Yerevan.” The police seized the knife with which she was ripping down the poster.

The number of activists is increasing near the building.
