A group of residents of Yerevan's Sari Tagh district today staged a protest outside the Yerevan Municipality, demanding adequate compensation for their houses which have been declared under the threat of collapse.
The residents had brought a scorpion with them.
"Look, we are sleeping with this arachnid," said the protesters.
By a 2009 decision of the Armenian government, the residents were to be given flats in one of the high-rise buildings in Myasnikyan street until 2011. However, they still live in rented flats or their houses with constant fear in their hearts.
