Georgian, Polish presidents' motorcade fired on in South Ossetia

Shots have been fired at a motorcade carrying the presidents of Georgia and Poland, but no one was hurt, Georgian Parliament speaker David Bakradze said on Sunday. Lawmaker Marika Verulashvili said the shots were fired when the motorcade with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and Polish President Lech Kaczynski approached a Georgian police checkpoint near South Ossetia. Verulashvili said in a telephone interview the gunshots came from the territory controlled by South Ossetian separatists and Russian troops.
