Riot police in Tbilisi, Georgia, used tear gas, rubber bullets and a water cannon to break up demonstrations calling for the ouster of President Mikhail Saakashvili. Saakashvili, who has tried to integrate Georgia with the West, declared a state of emergency and banned all news broadcasts except state-controlled TV. He also expelled three Russian diplomats and accused Moscow of inciting the protests. Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli said "an attempt to conduct a coup was made, and we had to react to that."
