Meanwhile Rupert Murdoch's estate- which is one of the most expensive in the Los Angeles city limits- has also been evacuated. Some 1,000 firefighters battled to save homes, with one suffering a minor injury, Welsbie said.

Prosecutors, who say Mr Saakashvili is being funded by businessmen close to Russian Federation, released audio and video recordings which they say proved he had received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the criminal group.

"The situation with Saakashvili is not worthy of global attention, because there are specific crimes that were committed and we must ensure transparency of the investigation and absolute openness", Poroshenko said.

Law enforcers are reported to have detained the leader of the "Movement of Popular Forces", former Georgian president and ex-governor of Odesa region, Mikheil Saakashvili.

Law enforcement officers searched Saakashvili's apartment in Kyiv on December 5, dragged him off the roof, and bundled him into a vehicle.
