Opposition Protesters in Violent Clashes with Georgia Police in Tbilisi
At least 29 people have been wounded when violence broke out between anti-government protesters and police forces in Tbilisi overnight.
Six of the wounded persons are policemen, according to the Georgian Interior Ministry, ITAR-TASS has reported.
The clashes occurred during a late-night opposition rally demanding the resignation of the Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.
The police are reported to have used truncheons and rubber bullets in order to protect their headquarters as protesters tried to storm the building by climbing over its fence.
President Saakashvili's opponents have been protesting since April 9, demanding that he resign over Georgia's war with Russia in August 2008 and over allegations of authoritarian rule.
