Georgia accuses Russia at World Court


Georgia is taking its case against Moscow to the U.N.’s highest court. Georgia is accusing Russia of ethnic cleansing through a campaign of murder, rape and mass expulsion going back to 1990 in two separatist provinces. Georgia is asking the court to order Russia to cease all military action and withdraw its forces, to enable hundreds of thousands of displaced ethnic Georgians to return home, and to pay Georgia an unspecified amount in compensation.
