Georgian forces mull strike on gorge

Parliamentary speaker Nino Bordzanadze said Georgia’s government may launch a security operation on the Kodori gorge. This means Georgia may soon have another hot-spot on its territory.

Bordzanadze issued the statement after a warlord refused to act on a defence ministry order to disband units of armed volunteers under his command. Kodori gorge is located in Abkhazia, western Georgia, the only district in restive Abkhazia controlled by the capital, Tbilisi.
