Medvedev : Georgia will lose South Ossetia

The Russian president has said that the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia are unlikely to want to remain part of Georgia. His comments came as both Russia and the US made statements about the Georgia situation. The US have accused Russia of wanting to punish Georgia for being western-leaning while trying to secure the truce between the 2 sides.

Meanwhile Russia have been accused of using cluster bombs against the Georgians after claims by US human rights groups. The Russian military however denied the weapons, banned by many countries, had been used. Some relief operations have been hampered by gunmen who stole vehicles from UN workers in Gori.
