TBILISI, DFWatch–A false bomb alert caused a bridge close to a restaurant district in Tbilisi to be evacuated Wednesday afternoon.

Passers-by noticed a suspicious suitcase on the sidewalk of Metekhi Bridge at around 6pm.

Police sealed off the tourist destination, evacuated the people there and sent in an anti-terror unit.

The suitcase turned out to contain only women’s shoes and clothes.

Traffic has now been restored.

The Metekhi district lies in one of the oldest parts of Tbilisi, close to a strip of restaurants and bars popular with tourists.
