At least six people have been killed and more injured as a result of a bombing of the town of Gori this morning, Temur Iakobashvili, the Georgian state minister for reintegration, said.
Gori has come under a series of air strikes from Russian aircraft in the last few days. Dozens of civilians were killed in a single air strike on August 9.
“Russia has turned Gori into a second Grozny,” President Saakashvili said on August 12.
Russian officials have claimed that only military installations were targeted across Georgia and particularly in Gori – a military base is located in the town.
