TBILISI, May 26 (ITAR-TASS) - Two policemen were killed in an operation to break up an opposition rally on the Freedom Square in Tbilisi overnight to Thursday, the Georgian Interior Ministry reported.
A policeman Nodar Tskhadadze, 54, and Lieutenant of Police Vladimir Masulashvili were knocked down by a car of the opposition motorcade, which "was leaving the Freedom Square at the high speed," after the law enforcement agencies launched an operation "to mop up the territory adjacent to the parliament," chief press officer of the Georgian Interior Ministry Shota Utiashvili said.
The National Assembly of Georgia opposition organization has been holding an protest action since May 21 that brought together from 10,000 to 15,000 people in the first days. The police launched the breakup of the protest action, when it "became unauthorized" overnight to Thursday, the Interior Ministry reported. The oppositionists reported that in the breakup of the rally dozens of people were injured and several protesters were detained.
