A woman mourns at a memorial to Georgians killed during the 1992-1993 armed conflict in Abkhazia during a ceremony to mark the annual anniversary of the event in Tbilisi, on September 27, 2013. Abkhazian separatists waged a war with Georgia in the 1990s after the break-up of the Soviet Union that killed several thousand people and left 250,000, mostly ethnic Georgians, as refugees. Georgia insists that Abkhazia is an integral part of its territory but Russia has recognised it and South Ossetia as independent states following its brief conflict with Georgia in 2008.
