August 9th. Tskhinvali

A friend from Kyrgyzstan gave me this link to a blog ( maintained by a young man living in Tskhinvali. I thought it would be interesting to translate his eyewitness accounts.

"Many lives have been lost. Many children have perished. Children were run over by many Georgian tanks.

I am going to a bunker. I've spent the past two and a half days in cellars, this morning I ran from tanks.

All I have is an automatic weapon. Nothing else. The phone has barely charged, but with this are bigger problems, no electricity. No gas. There are almost no intact homes left. Forget about the news, there's an information blockade! The internet connection is barely working."
