TBILISI, August 24 (RIA Novosti) - A train hit a mine on Sunday morning near the Georgian city of Gori, a Georgian Interior Ministry official said, adding that there were so far no reports of casualties.

The incident took place next to an abandoned Georgian military base occupied by Russian troops during recent fighting over breakaway South Ossetia.

"The explosion occurred when a goods train carrying heating fuel was passing the military base. We have no exact information at the moment, but preliminary reports suggest the track was mined," said Shota Utiashvili.

"We have no information on casualties at present," he added.
