May 9, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe has condemned an attack on its monitors in Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia.
In a statement, the OSCE said a group of men identifying themselves as South Ossetian police fired at a Joint Peacekeeping Forces team that included OSCE military monitors.
The incident occurred on May 7 after monitors discovered a weapons cache.
The OSCE's chairman in office, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos, called the incident "serious and unacceptable."
