VIDEO: Campaign to save ancient gold mine in Georgia - Sakdrisi

Civil society activists in Georgia are campaigning to save what international archaeologists believe could be the world's oldest gold mine.

Scientists say it dates back nearly 5,400 years. But the Georgian government has recently allowed commercial mining to start there, saying the site has no historical value.

Rayhan Demytrie spoke to Dr Thomas Stoellner, of the Archeologist University of Bohum, Soso Tsabadze from RMG Gold, and activist Marine Mizandari.
