YEREVAN, Armenia -- Two leaders of an Armenian opposition group have
been charged with attempts to organize mass disorder.

The charges on Thursday came two days after police detained four
members of the Founding Parliament opposition group. The Investigative
Committee said weapons were found in the search of homes and offices
that accompanied the detentions.

Group leader Jirair Sefilian and activist Varuzhan Aventisian would
face sentences of up to 10 years if convicted on the charges.

Investigators said the detentions were aimed at preventing disorder
allegedly planned for April 24, the day the country will mark the
centennial of the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks. Turkey
denies the deaths constituted genocide, saying the toll is inflated
and that those killed were victims of civil war and unrest.
