Hundreds of Georgian troops have been sent to the streets of the capital Tbilisi following the declaration of a state of emergency.

President Mikhail Saakashvili has accused Moscow of plotting to overthrow him and expelled Russian diplomats from the capital.

Russia denies it played a role in organising mass demonstrations calling for Saakashvili to resign, and has promised appropriate counter measures in response to the return of its three representatives.

Jonah Hull reports from Moscow.
