Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Tom Parfitt travelled to Tskhinvali, in a trip organised by the Kremlin, to witness first hand the destruction caused by the battle for South Ossetia

Close to the centre of the city Russian officers led the group to the city's main hospital which was hit by small arms fire and shells during the first days of fighting. Doctors at the hospital said they had been forced to carry out operations in corridors and the basement of the building without electricity, water or light.

It seems reports of the city being leveled were a little bit of exaggeration, BUT neighborhoods definitely were leveled by Grad rockets
