A JC correspondent has been robbed at gunpoint by a Russian soldier while reporting the war in Georgia.
Israel correspondent Anshel Pfeffer, 35, was forced to abandon the hire car he shared with three other Israeli journalists at a checkpoint in the city of Gori when troops began firing shots in the air.
Their Georgian driver fled and one of them was forced from the car as they ran for cover. The soldier then drove away the car, complete with cameras, as they sought refuge in nearby woods.
