Protesters Rally in Tbilisi, Georgia, After Beaten Journalist's Death

Protesters took to the streets of Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 12, after a journalist who was beaten at a Pride parade earlier that month died.

The protesters gathered outside the headquarters of the ruling Georgian Dream Party to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and his government, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) said.

Twelve people were detained, RFE/RL said.

The protests came after a 37-year-old TV Pirveli camera operator, Aleksandre Lashkarava, was found dead on July 11, after being beaten during a Pride counter-protest in Tbilisi on July 5.
