Policeman killed in Chechnya clash

Policeman killed in Chechnya clash

Authorities in Chechnya say a policeman has been killed and another wounded in a clash with militants.
The Interior Ministry of the restive Russian republic said Tuesday that the clash took place during the night near the village of Diyshe-Vedeno.
Chechnya has been wracked by two wars between separatists and Russian forces since 1994. There have been no major offensives in several years, but small clashes persist.
Rising violence in recent months has undermined Kremlin claims that stability is returning to the region.
