The World

Life is strained but slowly returning to normal in the Armenian capital of Yerevan and in Stepanakert, the main city of the disputed ethnic enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, according to Soviet media. The television news program "Vremya" said children have returned to school in Stepanakert but that a curfew remains in effect and many state enterprises are idle. The Tass news agency said tens of thousands of people were milling around downtown Yerevan, where activists held mass meetings last week. Armenia is pressing for the annexation of Nagorno-Karabakh, a mainly Armenian enclave now part of the republic of Azerbaijan.
