TBILISI, August 30 (Itar-Tass) — The main stage of a special operation to unarm the armed group in the Lopota Gorge is over, Georgian Deputy Interior Minister Shota Khizanishvili told reporters on Thursday. The special operation has not been finalized “over a strong fog” a day before, he said.
Khizanishvili noted that 11 members of the armed group were found dead. “Some of them are Russian citizens, residents of the North Caucasus. All killed people will be buried according to their religious convictions,” the deputy interior minister said. “Presumably several injured members of the armed group may be hiding in various parts of the Lopota Gorge, therefore, the Georgian law enforcement agencies continue the actions for their search,” Khizhanishvili said.
Two Georgian police commandoes and military doctor of the Interior Ministry Vladimir Khvedelidze were killed in the special operation, which is underway in the gorge on the Dagestani section of the Russian-Georgian border. Five police commandoes were injured.
