YEREVAN, Armenia () -- Security agents firing guns in the air and wielding metal rods attacked demonstrators at a political rally, injuring several people and arresting dozens.

The clash took place Wednesday when about 7,000 people gathered near the presidential palace in downtown Yerevan to protest the banning of nine political parties from upcoming parliamentary elections.
