GORI, Georgia, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Two Russian fighter jets bombed a Georgian artillery position about 10 km (6 miles) north of the Georgian town of Gori on Saturday, a Reuters reporter said.

Gori is about 50 km from the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali, the focus of fighting between Georgian forces and Russian-backed separatists, and outside the breakaway province itself.

The main Georgian military base in the region is situated there. (Reporting by Matt Robinson, writing by James Kilner, Editing by Richard Balmforth)
