Russian forces have taken the Georgian Interior Ministry in the western city of Zugdidi amid an escalating conflict in the Caucasus region. "The Russians have crossed the border and are now in control of Zugdidi," a reporter for Norwegian TV2 news channel said on Monday. The arrival of the Russian troops came just after UN observers left the town, AFP quoted the reporter as saying. "We saw Russian military trucks passing by. We saw hundreds of soldiers. There was a mix of soldiers from the regular army and soldiers that are supposed to be peacekeepers," he said. This comes while Georgian authorities said Russian forces occupied the city of Gori, 76 kilometers west of Georgia's capital, Tbilisi. (Source)
