Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 24 Feb.'11 / 11:26

Police found and destroyed three explosive devices outside the premises of Imedi television station in Digomi district of the capital city Tbilisi late on February 23, the Georgian Interior Ministry said.

Shota Utiashvili, head of the information and analytical department of the Interior Ministry, said the police obtained information about the explosive devices from a group of suspects, who were arrested over past three months and charged with carrying out series of explosions in Tbilisi in autumn, 2010. In December and February Georgia arrested total of nine persons in connection to those blasts, which Tbilisi said were “terrorist acts organized by Russian intelligence forces”. According to the Interior Ministry one of the suspects, who was arrested in December, placed the explosive devices in October, 2010.

Imedi TV ran an unscheduled, special news bulletin late on Wednesday night showing its headquarters and surrounding area sealed off by the police. It also ran for multiple times footage on which a sound of explosion was heard in what appeared to be police destroying one of the explosives. The TV station also said that one of the explosives, presumably hexogen, was found at the parking lot.
