Eight people were killed in the Armenian capital in Saturday's clashes
Eight people were killed in the Armenian capital in Saturday's clashes between police and protesters unhappy with recent presidential election results, police said on Sunday referring to the Health Ministry.

"The Prosecutor General's Office is investigating the circumstances of those people's death. The number of those injured is being verified," police said.

Armenian riot police used tear gas and electric stun guns to disperse thousands of supporters of Levon Ter-Petrosyan who was defeated by Prime Minister Serzh Sarkisyan in the February 19 vote. Sarkisyan gained 52.8% of the vote against the incumbent's 21.5%. Protesters said the polls were rigged.

The president declared a state of emergency late on Saturday over violence.
