Georgian Dream and opposition clash in Georgia's Parliament hall (VIDEO)
Representatives of the opposition and the Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia ruling party on Monday staged a fight in the parliamentary conference hall. The brawl was broadcast live on the Rustavi 2 TV channel.
The scuffle erupted after media representatives and opposition MPs tried to enter the conference room to talk with pro-government MPs in connection with the death of Alexander Lashkarava, operator of the Georgian TV Pirveli, who was beaten on July 5.
