Five Officers Killed as Blast Hits Police Base in Chechnya


A blast in Russia’s southern republic of Chechnya killed at least five policemen on Friday, Reuters news agency reports Monday.

The blast rocked an Interior Ministry base in the Gudermes region of Chechnya, a source in the Southern Federal District’s law enforcement services reported.

The incident is under investigation, he said.

Russian leaders say Chechnya, where Russia has fought two wars since 1994, is a stable province undergoing reconstruction.

But Chechen separatists, many of whom say they are fighting in the name of Islam, are able to launch attacks on Russian forces from their mountain hideouts
