Apr 21 - Georgia has accused Russia of shooting down an unmanned reconnaissance plane over Georgian territory at the weekend.

The Georgian defence ministry released video footage it said came from the drone's on-board camera and which it said showed a Russian MiG-29 jet firing on the Georgian plane as it flew over the breakaway Abkhazia region.

The Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili described the incident as "an act of international aggression by Russia."

In an initial response, a spokesman for Russia's air force called the allegation "nonsense."
