144 people were burned at a political rally in the Armenian capital of Yerevan last Friday when bunches of hydrogen balloons bearing political slogans burst into flames. An Agence France-Presse story without a byline reports:
“The balloons exploded and caught fire after people holding the bunches released them from their hands into the air,” a witness told AFP.

...The promotional balloons were decorated with the governing party’s election slogan “Let’s believe in change”.
