TSKHINVAL, September 29 (Itar-Tass) —— South Ossetia has informed the mission of EU observers in Georgia about the attack on a border guard post in the Ossetian village of Karzman.
Presidential envoy for post-conflict settlement Khokh Gagloyev told Itar-Tass that his office, using the hotline, informed members of the mission about the fact of firing at the South Ossetian border guard post and the detention of a Georgian policeman.
