More than 10,000 at Tbilisi protest

Right now, more than 10,000 demonstrators are calling for a runoff in election. The crowd is dismissing the the final election results, officially released today, as blatant fraud. There were some banners criticizing Washington and Matthew Bryza as promoting "anti-democracy" in Georgia.

Opposition leaders say they won't back down, but it's difficult to see how they could be successful. The CEC and the courts have rejected most of their complaints, and the government can hardly order a runoff in an election they call valid.
