An aide to the leader of a powerful paramilitary group was arrested Thursday in the bombing that slightly injured Georgian leader Eduard Shevardnadze earlier this week.
A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said Alexander Ochorishvili, an aide to warlord Dzhaba Ioseliani, had been arrested. A search of Ochorishvili’s office in the parliament building turned up several thousand rounds of ammunition, machine guns and pistols, and about $16,000, officials said.
Ioseliani has denied involvement in Tuesday’s bombing, which injured several people and destroyed several cars outside Shevardnadze’s offices in the parliament building. Shevardnadze escaped with cuts and scratches.
