>Georgia and Russain in Hague court over conflict

GEORGIAN accusations thatRussia committed human rights violations against ethnic Georgians in the breakaway provinces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia went before an international court on Monday, Aaron Gray-Blockof Reuters writes.

Georgia is seeking a provisional order or injunction from the International Court of Justice, which investigates disputes between nations, orderingRussia to halt the alleged violations, “including attacks against civilians … murder, forced displacement, denial of humanitarian assistance”.

Russia is expected to question the jurisdiction of the ICJ during three days of emergency hearings, and may also dispute Georgia‘s claims that ethnic discrimination is occurring or argue the situation is beyond its control.
