It will take at least two weeks to restore portions of road linking Georgia with Russia, which were damaged by a landslide that hit the Dariali gorge close to the Kazbegi-Zemo Larsi border crossing point late on August 20, Georgian officials said on Friday.
The death toll from a landslide in Dariali gorge increased to three after bodies of two men were recovered on May 23 from trucks buried in debris.
Four people remain missing nearly a week after the disaster, according to the Interior Ministry. Officials initially put the number of missing persons at seven, but later revised it to six. Two of them were confirmed dead after the bodies were found on May 23.
18 tonnes of diesel fuel was supplied by the Russian side to Georgia to secure uninterrupted work of heavy equipment, cleaning up the area cut off by landslide in the Dariali gorge, the Georgian Interior Ministry said on May 19.
