Georgia: bomb attack in Abkhaz capital

A car bomb exploded in front of the Secret Services building early Sept. 25 in Sukhumi, the capital of the separatist Georgian enclave Abkhazia, shattering the windows and causing some structural damage but no casualties. The nearby Interior Ministry building and adjacent homes were also damaged. Yuri Ashuba, head of the Abkhazian Secret Services, attributed the attack to special units of the Georgian spy agency. In Tskhinvali, South Ossetia’s capital, a 13-year-old boy was killed that same day when an explosive device detonated after he picked it up, the separatist government’s official Web site reported.
