Blast injures 3 policemen in Abkhazia

According to reports, three policemen have been injured in a powerful explosion in Georgia’s breakaway region of Abkhazia. Apparently a bomb hit their car and then they were raked with automatic gunfire.

The officers fired back and the attackers fled across the border into Georgian territory.

On Thursday another blast killed two policemen and left 17 others injured in Georgia’s other breakaway region of South Ossetia.

The explosives were reportedly hidden in a television set left at a militia post.
