The government is investigating, with the help of the FBI, the production of a video that threatened Georgian troops and the president and purported to come from the Taliban. The video was uploaded from a computer in Georgia to YouTube on June 6, hours before an attack on Georgian troops in Afghanistan. Speculation has arisen that the video was made by Russia or by Georgian critics of President Saakashvili.
President Saakashvili again denied allegations that the previous government had sent as many as 120 Chechens living in exile in Europe to join the North Caucasus insurgency. A Russian media report alleged that Boston Marathon bomber Tamarlan Tsarnaev had attended seminars by Georgia's Caucasus Fund.
Eleven "militants" and three special forces soldiers were killed during fighting in the village of Lapanquri near the border with Dagestan. Six more fighters are said to be surrounded.
