"Displaced people in Georgia"

1 of 10

"The View" Niko Benize, 3 and his big brother Nukri, age 5, sit in the room they share with their family in Tskhaltubo, Georgia on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2007. An estimated 300,000 people were displaced as a result of Georgia's wars against two separatist military campaigns, one in the Black Sea region of Abkhazia in the northwest, and the other in the northeast region of South Ossetia. The war over Abkhazian, between 1992 and 1994, led to the displacement of approximately 240,000, mainly ethnic Georgians.
