nr Gori, GEORGIA

A fire burns underneath a military vehicle after a convoy of Georgian tanks and armoured personnel carriers was hit by Russian artillery fire as it retreated east from Gori. Georgia launched a series of attacks in an effort to reclaim the breakaway region of South Ossetia, which has had de facto independence - and Russian backing - since the end of a conflict in 1992. The attacks prompted Russia to retaliate against positions within South Ossetia and Georgia.
