US ambassador calls armed incident in Georgia’s Marneuli ‘an unacceptable violence’


US Ambassador to Georgia Ian Kelly has regarded last night’s armed incident in Georgia’s Merneuli district, densely populated by Azerbaijanis, as an unacceptable violence, APA’s Georgia bureau reported.   

 

“We are very concerned that people have suffered, some of them are in serious condition. We believe law authorities will identify criminals,” said the ambassador.

 

Late at night, on October 19, unknown persons made an armed attack on Azerbaijani-born Jeyhun Chovdarov, a candidate from the ruling Georgian Dream party for municipality membership in Gizilhajili village of Marneuli district, and three other persons who were with him. The wounded were hospitalized.

 

Investigation is underway on the incident.
