Police fire rubber bullets at protesters in Georgia - Reuters witness

TBILISI (Reuters) - Police in Georgia fired rubber bullets at protesters outside the country’s parliament building on Thursday, a Reuters witness said, forcing crowds angry over the visit of a Russian lawmaker to begin to disperse.

The scenes in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, flared up suddenly after public anger over the visit and speech of a member of the Russian lower house of parliament triggered big street protests.
