EU monitors enter "buffer zone", but ethnic cleansing continues

According to Reuters (reported by RFE/RL), the first group of EU monitors has entered the so-called “buffer zone” around South Ossetia. Russian troops initially blocked the way, but let the monitors through after about 10 minutes of negotiations, the agency report says.

Meanwhile, RFE/RL reports human rights workers as saying that ethnic Georgian villages inside South Ossetia are still being burned and destroyed by Moscow-backed forces.
