Baku, Azerbaijan, July 17

Armenian opposition party "Heritage" considers that the Armenian authorities are guilty for the events connected with the seizure of the police building in Yerevan, RIA Novosti reported.

"Heritage" calls for early presidential and parliamentary elections that could "radically change the situation".

Armed men seized a police station and hostages in Armenia's capital Yerevan on Sunday, demanding Armenians take to the streets to press their demands for the release of opposition politicians they said had been jailed unfairly.
