Russians break out of Abkhazia

Russian forces in the other breakaway region of Abkhazia have crossed into Georgia to attack the town of Senaki. Meanwhile there are reports that Gori had fallen to Russian forces though Russia itself has denied the claims made by Georgia although earlier on in Gori the Georgian leader Saakashvili was bundled away (below) in chaotic scenes when it was feared Russian aircraft were making an attack.

Georgian forces appear to be withdrawing back to the capital Tbilisi though Russia has accused Georgia of making an air attack on South Ossetia using helicopters.
