This publication gives witnesses' account of the August-2008 events they presented in their blogs. GeorgiaTimes correspondents collected the stories written by Tskhinval residents, city defendants, the military, journalists and those who simply cared for the situation, shocked at Saakashvili's bloody massacre over South-Ossetians. Today's issue contains the chronicle of August 11, the fourth day of war.

The Church of the Holy Virgin has been burnt down in the village of Hetagurovo in South Ossetia. This unique X-century Orthodox temple was a historical monument of South Ossetia and one of its spiritual centers. According to OSradio, the remains of the old were found inside the church. All defenders of the village fell in battle, showing fierce resistance on August 8. The old decided to hide in the church during the battle, obviously hoping for God's protection and reckoning that Georgian soldiers who purport to be orthodox Christians as well would not touch them in the church. But Georgian troops burnt them alive together with the church. Georgian soldiers took a large group of young women away from the village of Hetagurovo in an unknown
direction. No one knows about their fate. As was earlier reported by IA REGNUM with reference to the witnesses, Georgian soldiers insulted upon the women. In the same locality, people were run over by tanks. Only part of the villagers who hid in the wood remained alive. In all, the village numbered 170 houses.

"... My aunt came from Tskhinval today... Her stories sent shiver all over the spine...
The most "merciful" of what she told was that her husband's cousin was burnt ALIVE together with family by Georgians. They had a baby with them. The crueler thing is that Georgians threw grenades in the cellars, knowing that people were hiding there. It was before the 58 division came.
