Explosion Damages Railway in Georgia
A bomb exploded and destroyed a Georgian railway in what is suspected by some to be a terrorist case.
The blast on the Tbilisi-to-Zugdidi line occurred at around 3:30 a.m. (2230 GMT Monday), two hours before a passenger train was due to travel the route. No one was hurt.
The explosion was close to the de facto border with the Georgian breakaway region of Abkhazia but there was no immediate evidence of any separatist involvement.
The incident occurs among political instability in Georgia, due to last week's opposition blocking of the Tbilisi rail station to protest President Mikheil Saakashvili, and to last year's five-day war with Russia.
