Suicide bombers in Chechnya

Posted by Info on 31/08/2009

Ria Novosti: Three police officers and three civilians were injured early on Friday when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in Chechen town of Shali  when police were attempting to arrest the suspects.

Moscow has scaled down its military presence in the republic in recent years, officially ending its decade-long anti-terrorism operation in April, but violence has risen in recent months, with militants targeting police.

On Tuesday, a suicide bomber killed three officers at a carwash in a Chechen village.
