TSKHINVALI, December 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The border between South and North Ossetia remains closed, and over 100 vehicles are stranded. The drivers told Itar-Tass that the traffic was suspended because of the avalanche hazard.
Meanwhile, supporters of ex-South Ossetian presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva have been holding a rally on the Tskhinvali central square for the third day.
One of them, Gen. Barankevich, said that the actual reason for the closed road was that volunteers from the Caucasian republics wanted to come to Tskhinvali to support them.
All is quiet on the square. The temperatures are down to three degrees below zero Centigrade and people have built bonfires to warm up. A man is playing a guitar and singing about the homeland of South Ossetia and the beloved Russia. People are cooking food in the tents.
