At least 10 people have been killed and 22 injured in three days of fighting in a remote mountainous region of Georgia's rebel province of Abkhazia, Reuter reports from Tbilisi.

A statement from President Eduard Shevardnadze's office said Abkhaz forces had shelled villages along the Kodori, an area populated mainly by Georgians who have hung on there despite the separatist victory in the province last September.
