News on our journalists

According to the latest information we have, both Winston Featherly and Temuri Kiguradze are in North Ossetian capital of Vladikavkaz.

Winston sustained a leg injury, and Temuri has a light arm injury.

We have no information on the nature and severity of Winston's leg injury, but we know he has been operated in Vladikavkaz military hospital and his life is not under threat.

They are relatively safe and their life is not threatened.

It is still unclear when and how will they return to Georgia.

We wish them best of health and express our hope they will return as soon as possible.

I am a friend of Winston from Anchorage, Alaska. After many hours of searching I was able to call and talk to him in the Republican Hospital of Vladikavkaz, Russia. He was shot in the lower leg, it is a serious injury. Winston is trying to get SIM card and charger for his Nokia cell phone so that he can call his family. If anyone in Vladikavkaz can help him get those items I will pay for them. Please help,
