1. Last week, South Ossetian artillery began a more intensive than normal shelling of Georgian border regions: this is not uncommon over the years. There is some possibility that the South Ossetian shelling was in response to Georgian shelling: it is almost impossible to say who started it.

2. After three days of increased shelling by South Ossetian artillery, Georgian forces invaded South Ossetia on Thursday night.
