The breakaway Georgian region of South Ossetia alleged on Monday that two unexploded Georgian shells landed in its capital Tskhinvali, but Tbilisi dismissed the claim as nonsense.

Both sides have regularly accused each other of firing across the de facto border since the Moscow-backed region decisively broke from Georgian control in a war last August, but accusations of shell fire is rare.

“At 5:10 a.m. (2:10 a.m. British time) two shells… fired from the Georgian village of Nikozi broke up near the kindergarten on Dzhioyev Prospect” in Tskhinvali, the South Ossetian government said in a statement on its website (cominf.org).

“There were no casualties,” the statement said. “The remains of the unexploded shells were found by Defence Ministry sappers.”
