All passengers have been evacuated from Yerevan subway after power outrage on Wednesday, spokesperson for Yerevan mayor Hakob Karaperyan said on Facebook.

He said electricity supply has been suspended, and in some sections the trains were left in the tunnels.

After electricity supply was restored partially, the trains approached the stations. The subway will cease operations until the problem is solved completely, he said.
