Russia Says It Halts Ground Invasion

There are reports that under pressure from President Bush and the United States Medvedev has ordered a halt to the Russian ground invasion of Georgia. But Russian warplanes continue to attack the Georgian city of Gori.

Via RFE/RL:

Reuters said at least five people were killed in the Russian bombings in Gori. Georgian television said the central square of the city was hit and that university buildings in the city are on fire.

Nogovitsyn has stated that the halting of ground operations does not mean that Russia will stop carrying out "intelligence gathering" on Georgian territory. (Lenta.ru)
