TBILISI: Authorities in the former Soviet republic of Georgia say an explosive device was planted on the car of a driver for the Israeli Embassy but defused.

Shota Uitashvili, spokesman for the Georgian Interior Ministry, said the driver noticed a package attached to his car's undercarriage on Monday and called police.

Police found a grenade in the package and it was defused, Utiashvili said.

He said the car was in a parking lot about 200 yards (meters) from the embassy, where the driver had parked it in the morning after coming from his home.

It was not immediately clear where the bomb was attached to the car.

The Israeli Embassy in Tbilisi declined comment.
