Russians blow up Georgian ship


Russian military vehicles have moved into the Georgian port of Poti.

The BBC's Richard Galpin managed to use a mobile phone to film a half-sunken Georgian coastguard vessel being blown up with Russian explosives.

In the past few days, up to six Georgian navy vessels have either been crippled or sunk.

There is no commentary on this video.
