Thousands violently protest in Georgia over gay rights rally

TBILISI, Georgia -- Thousands of Georgians have protested in the capital Tbilisi against a gay rights rally being held to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

They broke through police barricades and carried stinging nettles with which to beat activists. Some posters read: "We don't need Sodom and Gomorrah".

Police were forced to bus the 50 or so activists out of the city center to avoid further violence.

Several people, including a journalist and a police officer, were injured.
