Armenian authorities confirmed the unfortunate fatality and revealed that three individuals were hospitalised, one in a critical condition, suffering from burns and other injuries.
Amidst this tragedy, attention turns to the Cymru football team, currently in Armenia for their Euro 2024 qualifier preparations. Scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm UK time, the match holds additional weight as over 1,000 Welsh fans are expected to attend, with more travelling to the capital, regardless of ticket status.
