Russian Warplanes Continue To Bomb Georgia

Georgia says it's pulling its troops out of the breakaway region of South Ossetia, the scene of fierce fighting for the past three days, and that it wants a cease-fire with Russia.

But Russia says there are still Georgian forces in South Ossetia, and Russian warplanes have continued bombing targets inside Georgia.

NPR's Ivan Watson in Tbilisi, Georgia, and Andrea Seabrook talk about the day's developments.
