Living in no man's land

NIKOSI, Georgia -- The village of Nikosi is less than a kilometer from Tskhinvali, the capital of Georgia's breakaway province, South Ossetia. The area saw intense fighting during the war, and tensions remain high along the de facto border.

Many of the villages inhabitants live beyond the last Georgian checkpoint, in no man's land between South Ossetia and Georgia. I recently went there and talked with several villagers.
