More gunfire on Georgian-Abkhazian border

More gunfire on Georgian-Abkhazian border
A shootout between Abkhazian frontier guards and Georgian troops is reported to have taken place Friday night on the border between Georgia and its breakaway republic of Abkhazia.

The Abkhazian Presidential envoy to the region said there had been activity on the Georgian side  before the fire fight broke out.

“Yesterday the Georgians started to fortify their borders. At around midnight we heard gunshots from the Georgian side and responded in kind. The shooting continued for around ten minutes. No one was injured. Georgia’s brought additional units into the immediate Abkhazian border zone and they aren’t supposed to be here,” Ruslan Kishmareya stated.
