Armenian President Suspends Electricity Price Hikes

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has suspended hikes in household electricity rates in an effort to end the protests that have blocked the capital's main avenue for six straight days.
It was not yet clear whether the announcement would persuade the demonstrators to disperse.
Thousands of protesters have blocked Yerevan's main avenue since Monday, their numbers steadily increasing throughout the week.
