TBILISI, DFWatch–Four transgender women are being treated for cuts after an attack at a nightclub in downtown Tbilisi, the capital of the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
The incident occurred at 7am Monday on Elbakidze Street, near Rustaveli, one of the main metro stations in the city.
Women’s Initiative Supporting Group (WISG) told of the attack on Wednesday but did not reveal the name of the club where it took place.
WISG reports that one of transgender victims got a fractured arm, two received bruises and the fourth an injured nose.
The attackers left the scene immediately after the incident and their identities are not known at the current time.

A lawyer working for WISG will protect the three transgender women’s interests in court, the organization said.
