Human rights group: Georgia admits to dropping cluster bombs

Human Rights Watch said on Monday that Georgia has admitted to dropping cluster bombs in its military offensive to assert control over the restive province of South Ossetia. The human rights group said it received an official letter from Georgia's Defense Ministry that acknowledges use of the M85 cluster munition near the Roki tunnel that connects South Ossetia with Russia. Human Rights Watch's arms division researcher Bonnie Docherty told reporters in Geneva on Monday that Russia undoubtedly used cluster munition in several places during the conflict. This, despite Russia's continued denials.
