It is reported that unknown persons opened fire from small weapons and, presumably, from grenade launchers against Georgian special forces soldiers representing the counter-terrorism department of the state security service.
The building, where people suspected of terrorism are settled, is cordoned off by several rings from the police officers in Tbilisi and the surrounding areas.
It is reported about the serious injury of one Georgian special forces. He was taken to the clinic in critical condition. He was diagnosed with numerous head injuries, damage to the bones of the skull and open bleeding.
In the school closest to the scene of the event, classes are canceled.
The law enforcement authorities have spread a statement that damage to residential buildings will be compensated.
