Bloody Chechen raid

The week's news at a glance.

Nazran, Russia

Some 200 Chechen militants attacked the Interior Ministry of a neighboring Russian province this week, killing at least 75 people and seizing hundreds of weapons. The raid on Nazran, the capital of Ingushetia, was the largest attack by Chechen rebels outside Chechnya since 1999. Rebels took over police headquarters for hours and destroyed security posts around Nazran, before escaping in a convoy of trucks loaded with guns and ammunition—leaving behind smoldering rubble and streets littered with wounded. “The main goal was to get weapons,” said regional justice official Sergei Prokopov. “This means they have new recruits they have to arm.”
