The streets of Georgian capital Tbilisi are quieter, after a state of emergency was put in place by the country's president Mikhail Saakashvili.
President Saakashvili imposed the 15-day emergency after six days of opposition rallies, saying Russian special services were behind the unrest.
Troops are patrolling the streets to enforce the emergency rules banning all demonstrations and ensuring that only state television can broadcast news.
Police clashed with protesters in the capital on Wednesday, using tear gas, water cannon and batons to disperse mass demonstrations.
The demonstrators, who had attempted to block Tbilisi's main thoroughfare, accuse President Saakashvili of corruption and are calling for his resignation and a fresh election.
Some 500 people required medical attention after the clashes, most of them for the effects of tear gas, according to Georgian officials.
