Russia Destroys Key Georgian Bridge

IGOETI, Georgia -- Russia and its allied forces today destroyed a key railway bridge linking war-weary Georgia's capital to the Black Sea coast, effectively severing all east-west transportation routes within the small country, the Georgian Foreign Ministry announced.

Russian soldiers occupying the central Georgian town of Gori also pushed forward 14 miles toward the capital, Tbilisi, setting up positions on the country's main east-west road 25 miles from the capital. Adjacent agricultural fields were set afire, apparently by Russian soldiers. - Los Angeles Times
Oh yeah about that cease-fire...
