Georgian and Chechen officials yesterday agreed to allow the body of the ousted Georgian president Zviad Gamsakhurdia to be identified and flown to the self-proclaimed Chechen republic for burial, Reuter reports rom Tbilisi. Gamsakhurdia died at the end of last year - possibly by his own hand - after the failure of an armed comeback. The whereabouts of his body, somewhere in western Georgia, is known only to his family and close aides.
