Georgia police pulls out of disputed village

MOSABRUNI, Georgia (Reuters) - Georgian police withdrew from the disputed village of Mosabruni on the border of South Ossetia after Russian forces moved into it, a Reuters reporter at the scene said on Tuesday.

Police, which manned checkpoints in the village where government troops faced South Ossetian separatists in a tense stand-off for several days, left and moved deeper into Georgian territory after Russian tanks and armoured personnel carriers rolled into Mosabruni.
