Police officers and vehicles lined the streets of Yerevan, Tuesday morning following Monday's huge protest and sit-in demonstration on Freedom Square condemning the increase of electricity prices. Debris and rubbish were still visible but police and other officials are working on the clean-up operation. Late on Monday evening scuffles between police and protesters broke out as thousands of activists participated. Water cannon were deployed by police in a bid to disperse the seated protesters but this failed. No arrests or injuries have been reported. The Regulatory Commission raised electricity prices by 16 percent last week, increasing them for the third time in three years. Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian proposed to meet a small group of protesters, but the activists rejected the offer and took to the streets instead. If the price increase is not reviewed, protesters have announced they will march on the president's residence. The police warned the protesters that they will use force if public order is disrupted.
