Russian barrier project angers Georgians

Demarcation line dividing Georgia from South Ossetia region to heighten tensions in area still recovering from conflict.

    Russian troops are stepping up work on a controversial new barrier dividing Georgia from the disputed region of South Ossetia.

    The area saw a brief conflict between Russia and Georgia in 2008. Georgia lost a fifth of its territory when the republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia broke away.

    It is feared that the new demarcation line could increase tensions in an area still recovering from conflict.
