Georgian president visits South Ossetia boundary

ERGNETI, Georgia (Reuters) – Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili visited the village of Ergneti on the very border with South Ossetia on Sunday as Tbilisi said it had withdrawn it forces from the breakaway territory.

A Reuters correspondent said Saakashvili spoke with villagers during the brief visit to the area, just a few kilometers south of the separatist capital Tskhinvali, where fighting has raged for days.
