Georgia, Russia Battle for Control of South Ossetian Capital

Georgia said on Friday its forces were in control of the capital of the breakaway region of South Ossetia, but rebels said Russian armored vehicles had entered the northern edges of the city. “Tskhinvali and the heights around Tskhinvali and the majority of the villages in South Ossetia are under the control of Georgian forces,” Georgia’s pro-Western President Mikheil Saakashvili said in a televised address.—Reuters
