Security measures tightened in Yerevan metro
After the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg, security measures and control have been tightened at Yerevan metro stations.
Police are inspecting bags and backpacks of suspicious looking citizens in the metro and underground passages. CCTV cameras are also being used to monitor the public.
The Yerevan Metro press service noted that “the metro is a strategic object, we must remain vigilant.”
“Such precautions are necessary for the safety of citizens,” said a spokesperson for the Yerevan Metro, adding that the same steps were taken at metro stations in all the CIS countries.
As of 3 April, people have been carrying flowers to the Russian embassy in Armenia and have lighted candles in memory of the victims of the explosions that raged in the St. Petersburg metro.
