There was tension in Yerevan on Wednesday night as hundreds of demonstrators gathered to support gunmen holding several hostages in a police station in the Armenian capital. The hostage-takers are seeking the release of an opposition figure who was arrested in June for alleged illegal weapons possession.
The police fired tear gas and detonated smoke grenades after protesters began throwing stones at them. They also say they made 136 arrests among the demonstrators. Wednesday’s violence began when protesters tried to force their way into the police station after they were prevented from taking in food for the hostage-takers.
A number of demonstrators were injured and police say several officers were hurt too.At one stage shots were heard but the situation calmed down later in the evening.
Armenian media reported that more than 50 people sought medical treatment in Yerevan hospitals after the clashes. Authorities in the ex-Soviet republic accuse the  detained opposition leader, Jirair Sefilian, of plotting civil unrest. He has accused the president of mishandling a long-running conflict between pro-Armenian separatists and the breakaway Azeri region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

An armed group has stormed a police station in Armenia's capital, Yerevan, taking hostages and calling for the release of "political prisoners".
One policeman has been killed. The group released a video demanding opposition leader Jirair Sefilian and a number of others be freed, and urging supporters on to the streets. Mr Sefilian has strongly criticised President Serge Sarkisian and his handling of the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
The CivilNet newspaper identified the group as the Daredevils of Sassoun and said its members had released a video in which they say: "Dear friends, citizens, Armenian nation, it has begun, we are doing this for you... Go out to the streets!"
CivilNet said seven policemen were being held hostage but this has not been independently confirmed. The group was quoted as saying it would retaliate if attacked and had no intention of surrendering.
