Russia: Again Blast In Chechnya

Posted by Info on 09/02/2011

Three policemen from special task forces were wounded in an explosion late on Tuesday evening in Grozny, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Chechnya.

“An explosive device went off, when a group of policemen approached a four-storey apartment building on the Derbentskaya street. They wanted to investigate a tip-off about a militant hiding in one of the apartments.”

The Kremlin ended its decade-long antiterrorism campaign against separatists in Chechnya in April 2009, but has since had to intensify the fight against militants as skirmishes and attacks on police and officials have continued in the republic and around it.
