Riot police in Georgia used water cannons on Monday to disperse anti-government protesters who have taken to the streets after the ruling party backtracked on promised electoral reforms.

Hundreds of riot police in body armour and helmets sprayed water to break up a crowd of several hundred protesters outside the parliament building in the capital Tbilisi.

Police also cleared protesters away from the city’s main thoroughfare, Rustaveli Avenue, where they have blocked traffic since the last week.
