A group of anti-government gunmen who have been holed up in an Armenian police station for two weeks surrendered Sunday, security services said, ending a tense stand-off that left two police officers dead and saw several people taken hostage.

"The security forces' anti-terrorist operation has ended and led to the members of the armed group laying down their weapons and surrendering to the authorities," the national security services said in a statement. "Twenty terrorists were arrested."
