Demining specialists are working at Shota Rustaveli Batumi State University. According to the university administration, they were informed that there was a mine at the university. The administration staff received the information via e-mail.
“We received the message in the Russian language which said that the mine would explode in 48 hours. We hope that this has to do with a false alarm. We received a similar message several weeks ago but the fact was not confirmed,” Merab Khalvashi, Rector of the University said.
The university building was evacuated at 17:50. Police are mobilized at the university.
