The police continue investigating into the balloon explosion that took place during a pre-election rally of the Republican Party in Republic Square May 4.
As many as 154 people were injured as a result. Some of them have been operated on by a specially invited doctor from Germany.
Experts believe that the explosion may have been caused by methane or hydrogen put in the balloons instead of helium.
The incident was followed by controversy between the Republican Party and Prosperous Armenia, whose member, former FM Vardan Oskanyan was bewildered to see the rally continued despite the incident.
