Oil war horrors in Ossetia, and Abkhazia

This video is called Georgian tanks head for South Ossetia.

From Dutch daily Metro, 11 August 2008, page 2; only in their paper edition, not on their website:

Eyewitness account of the siege of Tschinvali in South Ossetia

South Ossetian student Christina Janovskaja fled from the war in Tschinvali and is now with aquaintances in Vladikavkaz [in North Ossetia] in Russia.

20 year old Christina was sitting at home with her brother Jan (17) and sister Jana (14) at the moment that the Georgian bombing of the city began. She lived in a neighbourhood of Tschinvsali which suffered very much. “An important target [of the Georgian invaders] was the TV tower opposite to our house. Some of the bombs hit our home”, Christina tells. …

To stay longer in a bomb shelter in Tschinvali was not a solution: “Georgian soldiers threw grenades into the shelters; though they knew civilians were inside.”

From Linda’s blog in the USA:

US-Backed Georgian troops burn South Ossetian refugees alive

Battles in South Ossetia continued throughout the night. Russian sources said that about 2,000 people had been killed in South Ossetia. Ossetian journalists wrote on their website that Georgian troops had captured a group of refugees from one of the regions of S. Ossetia. The Georgian military men locked them in a house and set the house on fire, burning all the people inside alive.

Meanwhile, the fighting has expanded to Abkhazia.
