Authorities in South Ossetia say Georgian troops have shelled the road being used for evacuating people from the conflict zone, according to Russian Interfax news agency. Attacks are continuing in the South Ossetian region, despite claims from Georgia that it was imposing a ceasefire.
There have been several explosions in the South Ossetian capital, Tskhinvali, after it came under a renewed shelling attack. Several Russian troops have been wounded.
A convoy of aid from Russia was attacked as it made its way to the ruined city of Tskhinvali.
Despite this, humanitarian supplies are arriving in the war-torn capital.
