Protesters shut down major intersection in Georgian capital after foreign agent law advances

TBILISI (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters shut down a major intersection in the Georgian capital on Tuesday after parliament passed in third reading a law denounced by the opposition and Western countries as authoritarian.

Reuters witnesses saw demonstrators converge on Heroes Square, an intersection controlling traffic between different neighbourhoods and close it down.
