Five individuals detained for murdering Irish tourist Tom Kennedy in the east Georgian town of Gori have been denied bail by a Gori District Court earlier today.

Four out of the five individuals are accused of murdering 28-year-old Tom Kennedy, while one has been charged for failing to report the crime. 

Police say that the detainees were drinking alcohol in an underground passage in the city of Gori on October 7. Later 28-year-old Irish citizen Tom Kennedy joined them and all together went to a bar to continue drinking.
