Embassies of several countries, including the U.S., U.K., France and Israel have issued warnings about street attacks on foreigners in Tblisi. Last week alone three Britons were beaten and robbed in the center of the city. The U.S. warning stated that criminals will not hesitate to use their weapons and should not be resisted. Several kidnappings have also occurred here in the past year. Two Spanish businessmen taken in November still have not been found.
