Georgian On Neighbors In Syria: 'Pure Intention To Help'

Georgia's Pankisi Gorge region, bordering Chechnya, has made the news this week as the U.S. government released two lists of individuals it accuses of working with extremist organizations in Syria, such as the Islamic State. Two of the accused men are ethnic Chechens from the Pankisi Gorge village of Duisi. RFE/RL Georgian Service correspondent Zviad Mchedlishvili interviewed a man from Pankisi who claims to have known them. (Camera by Orest Todua)
