A mass brawl broke out in the Dmanisi region of Georgia, where Azerbaijanis live, APA's Georgia bureau reports.

Local residents say the incident took place at about 5 o'clock today in "April 9" street of the region.

According to residents, a group of ethnic svans came to the shop run by Azerbaijani entrepreneur Gasham Shamilov and attacked him, as well as Azerbaijani youth in front of the store.
