South Ossetian bishop calls on people to rebuff Georgian aggression

Bishop George, head of the recently formed Alania diocese in South Ossetia, has called on people to protect their families and friends.

"We have once again experienced the 'care' of Georgia - never-ending humiliation, insults, slander, terrorist acts and gunfire at civilians.

"Georgia has shown such 'love and care' for our people for the past 18 years," says the appeal posted on the South Ossetian Information and Press Committee website on Thursday.

The bishop urged South Ossetians "to give full backing to those who protect their homes, children, wives, parents and friends and to serve the people and the fatherland with any possible talents and capabilities."
