Three servicemen killed in gunmen's attack on check-point

Three servicemen were killed in a terrorist attack on a federal check-point in the Urus-Martan district of Chechnya.

The incident happened last night in the outskirts of the village of Martan-Chu, the Urus-Martan district's administration reported.

The gunmen, equipped with small arms and grenade-launchers opened fire onto the position of the servicemen of the headquarters defence company. To help them out head of the village administration Elbek Movlayev arrived at the check-point with a local defence detachment.

During the battle he was badly wounded and sent to hospital, in addition three soldiers of the headquarters defence detachment were killed.

The case is under investigation.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
