A Georgian opposition party said on Thursday that dozens of its activists had been arrested overnight ahead of mass rallies against President Mikheil Saakashvili, but police denied the information.
The Democratic Movement-United Georgia party of former Saakashvili ally Nino Burjanadze said around 60 activists had been detained in the town of Rustavi southeast of Tbilisi.
"They were planning to come to Tbilisi today to attend the rally," party spokeswoman Khatuna Ivanishvili said.
"It is not true," said Interior Ministry spokesman Shota Utiashvili.
