Nor, amid the outrage at Russian bombardments, have there been much more than the briefest references to the atrocities committed by Georgian forces against citizens it claims as its own in South Ossetia's capital Tskhinvali. ... ganzer Artikel beim Guardian.

Es gibt viele Blogartikel die das ebenso in den Zusammenhang stellen - hab grad noch keine Zeit für mehr, sucht selber.
