Thousands of people gathered in front of Tbilisi’s parliament building on Friday, to protest in solidarity with the families of two teenagers stabbed to death in early December. At the same time, several counter demonstrators were reportedly detained as they tried to organise a rival protest several blocks away.

Footage shows one leader of the nationalist 2018 ‘March of the Georgians’, Ramaz Gagnidze, being detained by police.

The protests were sparked by the court's decision not to consider the death of David Saralidze a murder, charging one of the suspects with an attempted murder. Nevertheless, the other detainee was found guilty of killing Levan Dadunashvili.

The chief prosecutor of Georgia Irakly Shotadze has already resigned, while country's Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili has promised the interior ministry will review the case.

Two 16-year-olds David Saralidze and Levan Dadunashvili were killed in a brawl between students from two different schools in December 2017.
