TBILISI, Georgia — Georgian police said they found three bombs outside government buildings in the country's second-largest city and blamed Russia.
The Interior Ministry said three people were arrested on suspicion of planting two bombs outside a municipal building and one outside a civil registry office in Kutaisi, 240 kilometers west of Tbilisi.
"Those detained said they were ordered to put bombs outside government buildings in Kutaisi," the Interior Ministry said in a statement late last week. "They said that explosives were given to them by a Russian military officer."
The Russian Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry could not be reached for immediate comment.
