Drone captures scale of political protest outside Georgian government building

Hundreds turned out to central Tbilisi today (February 23) after opposition leader Nika Melia was forcefully arrested and frogmarched from his party headquarters by police.

Drone footage shows the scale of the protest as hundreds gather and rally outside the Governmental Administration building in the city as they chanted the national anthem.

Opposition leaders say they have two main demands, which are the release of Nika Melia and early elections.

They are expected to announce the future plans of the opposition at today's rally.
