Georgia Says Presidents' Cars Fired On

TBILISI, Georgia -- Shots were fired Sunday at a motorcade carrying the presidents of Georgia and Poland, but no one was hurt, officials said.

Georgian officials said the gunfire came from South Ossetia.

But Irina Gagloyeva, a South Ossetian spokeswoman, denied that shots were fired in the area, RIA-Novosti news agency reported. The Russian troops based in South Ossetia denied involvement, Interfax reported.

Georgia's Interior Ministry said the shots were fired as the motorcade carrying Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and Polish President Lech Kaczynski approached a Russian military checkpoint in the Akhalgori area.

But Georgian lawmaker Marika Verulashvili said the incident happened when the motorcade reached a Georgian police checkpoint near South Ossetia after visiting a camp of Georgian refugees.
