South Ossetian officials say Georgia has resumed intense shelling of the disputed province of South Ossetia in the Caucuses region.

“As of 3.30 p.m. (1130 GMT), Georgian forces renewed intense shelling of towns in South Ossetia, using various forms of weaponry, including heavy weapons,” Interfax quoted a spokeswoman for the region’s authorities, Irina Gagloyeva, as saying on Monday.

Georgia President Mikheil Saakashvili called for a ceasefire on Sunday, claiming Georgia was pulling troops out of the long-standing autonomous enclave of South Ossetia.

The European Union has proposed a peace agreement in a bid to ease strains between Russia and Georgia.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and his Finnish counterpart, Alexander Stubb, convinced Saakashvili to accept the peace proposal on Monday.

Moscow, however, has announced that it will not sign any agreement until Tbilisi stops aggression against the breakaway region.
