    Three gunmen and a police officer have been killed during a security operation in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.

    Shooting broke out late on Tuesday and lasted for almost 20 hours.

    Georgia's state security agency said the armed men were not Georgian citizens.

    One theory is that they may have been a cell from the restive North Caucasus.
