Georgia withdraws as Russia builds firepower

Russian forces took control of the Georgian breakaway region of South Ossetia on Sunday as Tbilisi withdrew its troops in the face of a build-up of Moscow's dominant firepower.

After Russia won control of South Ossetia, officials in Tbilisi raised fears of a new front opening in western Georgia, saying Moscow was preparing to attack another pro-Russian restive Georgian province, Abkhazia.
