Georgia calling back troops from Iraq

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili says the country is calling home its troops from Iraq amid heavy fighting in its separatist region of South Ossetia. Georgia has 2,000 troops serving with the coalition forces in Iraq, making it the third-largest contributor after the United States and Britain. But Saakashvili told CNN television Friday the troops would return urgently to Georgia in the face of the South Ossetia fighting that erupted late Thursday. "One brigade of Georgian forces is in Iraq and we are calling it home tomorrow," Saakashvili said in the interview.
