3/1/2008 1:13:17 AM Saturday, police in Armenia's capital Yerevan
moved to clear Armenian opposition supporters who have gathered near
central Yerevan's Freedom Square to protest the contested results of
February 19 presidential election.

Prime Minister Serzh Sarkisyan who had the backing of outgoing
President Robert Kocharian won the election, defeating former President
Levon Ter-Petrosian. While opposition supporters claim the election
was rigged, International observers judged the poll in the ex-Soviet
Caucasus republic to be generally democratic, reports the BBC.
