GORI -- A Georgian journalist covering his country's conflict with Russia was killed Tuesday when a shell hit their car in Gori city, an Agence France-Presse (AFP) photographer at the scene said.

His driver also died in the midmorning incident, said the photographer, who saw the journalist's ID card and the stricken vehicle in the main square of Gori alongside a huge statue of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

Their deaths brought to four the number of journalists and media workers known to have died since fighting erupted Friday. Four others have been reported wounded.

Russian warplanes bombed areas around Gori -- birthplace of Stalin and close to South Ossetia, the breakaway Georgian region at the heart of the conflict -- on Tuesday, the secretary of Georgia's national security council told AFP.
