S. Ossetia holding over 130 Georgian civilian hostages

The Telegraph writes that South Ossetian authorities are holding over 130 Georgian civilian hostages, including children, and are demanding a "prisoner exchange":

Georgian government officials said yesterday they were aware of the hostage situation but denied holding any South Ossetians captive to exchange.

Koba Subeliani, an MP responsible for internally displaced persons said, "We know about them. The problems is we don't have any hostages so we can't do any exchange".
