Suicide bombing

A suicide bombing in Chechnya killed three police officers yesterday, authorities in the restive Russian region said. Magomed Diniyev, a spokesman for the Chechen Interior Ministry, said the blast took place about midday in a gas station-carwash complex in the town of Mesker-Yurt, about 20km southeast of the capital Grozny. The attack is the latest in a rising wave of violence against police and soldiers in Russia's North Caucasus. At least 25 people died in the Aug. 17 suicide truck bombing of a police station in neighboring Ingushetia.
