Georgia will not pull its team from the Olympics as its war with Russia expanded on Saturday, with fighting spilling outside the Caucasus province of Ossetia and both sides moving reinforcements into the region, dpa reported.

Media reports from the Georgian capital of Tiblisi said President Mikheil Saakashvili would ask the team to remain in Beijing. Earlier reports had said he would recall the country's 35 athletes.
