Russia increases air raids on Georgia

The Telegraph, on Russia's invasion of Georgia:

The two countries are close to full scale war after Russian tanks invaded the tiny territory in response to Georgian attacks on Moscow-backed separatists.

Foreign journalists witnessed an air attack on the town of Gori early on Saturday morning and the Georgian government claimed Russian bombers had "completely devastated" the Black Sea port of Poti - a key transit route near a major gas pipeline.

Last night Russia had reportedly started to bomb civil and economic infrastructure, including the Black Sea port of Poti and the military base at Senaki. Between 8 and 11 Russian jets reportedly hit container tanks and a shipbuilding plant at the port.
