TBILISI, Georgia (AP) — The head of Georgia's national security council says Russian forces have taken the strategically key city of Gori.
Gori is on Georgia's main east-west highway, about 60 miles west of the capital Tbilisi. By taking the city, Russia has the potential to effectively cut the country in half.
Security Council head Alexander Lomaia said Monday that it was not immediately clear if Russian forces would try to advance on Tbilisi.
