Human Rights Watch says the Dutch cameraman who was killed on Tuesday in Georgia died from injuries caused by a Russian cluster bomb. The human rights organisation says that Russia bombed at least two Georgian cities with cluster munitions.
RTL cameraman Stan Storimans and seven others were killed during a Russian bombing raid on the Georgian city of Gori on Tuesday. RTL correspondent Jeroen Akkermans, also covering the conflict in Georgia’s separatist South Ossetia province, was injured in the attack.
Sandra Roelofs, the Dutch wife of President Mikheil Saakashvili, has offered her condolences to Mr Storimans’ relatives and will attend his funeral.
