world Updated: Aug 11, 2008 09:28 IST

Georgian forces are continuing to fire on the South Ossetian capital Tskhinvali despite claims to have withdrawn, the commander of Russian peacekeeping forces told the Interfax news agency on Monday.

"In certain zones (near Tskhinvali) Russian peacekeepers met active confrontation" overnight, said Marat Kulakhmetov.

He said Georgian soldiers continued to fire on Russian positions.

"One post of Russian peacekeepers was even bombed by Georgian aircraft," he said.

There were no casualties among the Russian soldiers in the attacks, he added.
