Georgia accused of installing artillery near South Ossetian city
The leader of Georgia's breakaway South Ossetia region claimed on Saturday that "this morning the Georgian side moved five artillery emplacements to one of the heights dominating [the South Ossetian capital] Tskhinvali]."
"We qualify this as one more aggressive act by Georgia in South Ossetia and cannot exclude the possibility of new armed provocations from the Georgian side," South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity told Interfax.
