TBILISI (Reuters) - Opposition supporters have broken down the door of Georgia's parliament building and entered the chamber where President Eduard Shevardnadze was giving a speech, according to live television.

Television pictures showed chaotic scenes inside the parliament on Saturday as scores of opposition supporters surged into the chamber, waving red and white flags and taking to the podium with microphones.

Shevardnadze was quickly hustled away by his bodyguards. He had been due to address the inaugural session of the new parliament.

The shit is starting to get very thick in the world. Not that the former Soviet states weren't pretty volitile to begin with, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better, does it?

Maybe they shoulda left the czar alone.
