The Abkhaz side has released Maia Danelia, who was arrested with two other Georgian citizens on February 26, the Georgian State Ministry for Reintegration has confirmed.

Two other Georgians - Mze TV journalist Malkhaz Basilaia and Davit Tsotsoria - remain in custody pending trial expected in a month, the Abkhaz prosecutor’s office said. They are charged with “illegally crossing the border.”

Meanwhile, Interfax news agency, quoting the Abkhaz leader’s envoy to Gali district, Ruslan Kishmaria, reported that a shootout had occurred close to the administrative border near the village of Saberio in the Gali district late on February 29.
