FOX FACTS: 6 Points in Russia-Georgia Cease-Fire Pact

A look at the six points in the French-brokered Russia-Georgia cease-fire pact, spelled out Wednesday by European Union foreign ministers:

— No recourse to the use of force.

— A lasting cessation of hostilities.

— Unfettered access for humanitarian aid providers.

— Georgian forces must withdraw to their usual barracks.

— Russian forces must go back to positions they held prior to the outbreak of hostilities. Pending an international peace monitoring mechanism, Russian peacekeepers will take additional security measures.
