Several police die in clashes with militants in Chechnya
Moscow - Several police died in clashes with militants who attacked a traffic post in the Chechen capital Grozny and then stormed a building housing local media, Russian officials said on Thursday. "There are losses among personnel," the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies, without being more specific. The latest skirmishes in volatile Chechnya, where Russia fought two wars over the past 20 years, took place hours before President Vladimir Putin was set to deliver his annual state of the nation address.
