GORI, Georgia (Reuters) – A Russian warplane dropped a bomb on an apartment block in the Georgian town of Gori on Saturday, killing at least 5 people, a Reuters reporter said.
The bomb hit the five-story building in Gori close to Georgia’s embattled breakaway province of South Ossetia when Russian warplanes carried out a raid against military targets around the town.
A Reuters reporter saw five bodies lying in the wreckage of the house. Several soldiers took several injured people to jeeps to be evacuated to hospital.
A man sitting in front of the burning apartment block was seen clutching the body of his dead brother and trying to clean blood from his face.
