Opposition member attacked in Georgia

Georgia's united opposition claims an explosive was thrown underneath the car of one of its representatives. Spokesman Giya Tortladze was leaving his office at the time of the attack. Eyewitnesses report seeing a black car pass by slowly before speeding-u

A blast followed seconds later.

“I went out of the office, got in my car, and started the engine. I wanted to warm it up. Within minutes a car passed by, I did not pay any attention to it. And they seem to throw something underneath my car. There was a blast and we all jumped,” said Tortladze.

He claims it was an act of intimidation.

No one was hurt and investigation is underway.
